Guided by intuition and backed by family heritage, Eduardo Chadwick and Robert Mondavi handcrafted a wine of distinctive quality and character. Sena is the culmination of their wonderful parternship and a passionate journey. An iconic decision is made from the heart. Following the sign of his intuition, in 1995 Eduardo Chadwick pioneered a joint venture with Robert Mondavi to handcraft a world-class Chilean wine. Chadwick searched alongside Mondavi for four long years before finding the ideal terroir in Chile's Valle de Aconcagua that spoke to their instincts. Sena is the culmination of their vision - an expression of consummate quality and character.

Eduardo Chadwick was awarded the prestigious title of Decanter Man of the Year 2018 for devoting his life to the service of fine wine and recognized excellence in the wine world. Eduardo commented: “More than for us, this award is for Chile. It is recognition that Chile has entered the realms of fine wine. Previous recipients – Robert Mondavi and Miguel Torres – have helped prove that their countries are part of this world-class family of wine terroirs. That’s what I have been trying to do.”

Sena is an authentic Chilean blend made from the finest Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenere, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot varieties. The Carmenere variety adds an evident Chilean personality to the wine.
