Casillero del Diablo has named Chilean-American actor Pedro Pascal the new star of its global Wine Legend campaign. Known for roles in The Mandalorian, Game of Thrones, Narcos and Wonder Woman 1984, Pascal will play a new, mysterious character linked to Casillero del Diablo’s renowned wine legend in upcoming advertising programming centered around television, video, and social media. The campaign continues the tradition of Casillero del Diablo’s cinematographic advertising initiatives and is set to debut later this year.
Pascal recently wrapped filming the Wine Legend campaign spots in Santiago, Chile. The Pascal spots build on prior campaigns from Casillero del Diablo featuring dramatic cinematography and celebrated characters. In addition to appearing in the Wine Legend campaign, Pascal is now the brand’s official ambassador.
“The selection of Pedro Pascal as the new legend is a historic event for Casillero del Diablo, as it marks our first appointment of a global brand ambassador,” said Sebastián Aguirre, global marketing director for Casillero del Diablo. “Pascal is a celebrity well known around the world who is enjoying an extraordinary moment in his career. Originally from Chile, he shares many notable characteristics with our brand, including sophistication, trustworthiness and intrigue, among others.”
Casillero del Diablo is currently the number one selling Chilean brand (750ml) in the United States and is the second-most powerful wine brand in the world for four years running, according to Global Wine Brand Power Index. In 2020, the brand grew to a global volume of 6.6 million cases, a million more than was shipped in 2019 and up from three million cases in 2010. Fueling the brand’s remarkable growth, among ongoing quality and excellence in winegrowing, is the Wine Legend campaign series—now poised for its most legendary chapter yet with Pascal at the fore.
