Casas del Bosque is located 70 km from Santiago, the capital of Chile, and 30 km from the port of Valparaíso, (UNESCO World Heritage Site). In 1993 the Italian descendants Cúneo family established the winery in the Casablanca Valley, one of the coolest spots in the area. The large and old pines and olive trees, and small white houses of adobe, defined the name of "Casas del Bosque”.
Currently the vineyard has 235 hectares planted, exclusively dedicated to the production of cool-climate varieties such as Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Riesling, Pinot Noir and Syrah. Cabernet Sauvignon and Carménère come from the Maipo, Colchagua and Chachapoal valleys.
One of Casa del Bosque’s biggest strengths is its soil. In the hills, red clay composites of volcanic origin sit on top of decomposed granite layers formed 110 million years ago beneath the Pacific Ocean.
This soil gives our wines the unique characteristic sea salt flavor.
An important part of our philosophy is our commitment to the environment. Taking care of our terroir and the resources that enable us to produce quality wines is a task that we take very seriously, and we work hard to reduce our impact on the planet.
Because of our investment in the most advanced viticulture technology and our exceptionally high-quality grapes, we are able to assure the high standard of our wines. We take care to let our vines grow with minimal human intervention and strictly control the production and treatment of our vineyards. Simply put, we concentrate on “Quality instead of quantity.” It is not in our interest to produce huge volumes, just the best wines.
An essential part of our philosophy is our team, a group of hard-working people who love what they do. They are passionate about wine and strive for excellence in winemaking. The work and efforts of Casas del Bosque staff allow the quality of our wines.
