Living La Vida 120 with Santa Rita

As Santa Rita 120 is one of Ireland's most loved wines, we thought we'd celebrate the start of the Irish summer by Living La Vida 120.

According to Chilean legend, 120 patriots, exhausted after a long, hard battle during the fight for Chile's independence, reached the land belonging to Santa Rita. On that fateful night in 1814, these forces of liberty found refuge in the estate cellars. Today, within these same cellars, Santa Rita's award-winning 120 wines are crafted to honour these heroic characters.

We started our summer at Ireland's largest garden festival, Bloom in the Park, drinking in the fantastic atmosphere in the gold award-winning Santa Rita 'Living Oasis' garden. We teamed up with celebrity Angela Scanlon at Bloom, asking Irish people what summer meant to them - and also announced our Santa Rita 120 summer party.

Throughout the summer so far, we have created content for the Santa Rita Ireland Facebook page, growing the audience by over 150% and reaching over 3 million people. We organised the Living La Vida 120 Summer Party on the rooftop of the beautiful Marker Hotel where the Malbec was marvelous and the Sauvignon Blanc exceptional.
