Butron Budinich Winery, Four Generations of Chilean Viticulture
The Butron Budinich winery is present in the Cachapoal Valley, in the subregions of Requinoa and Rancagua. The family came to Chile in the early XVIII century from Euskadi, Spain to settle in Rancagua city, Cachapoal Province. Today, they are linked to the Chilean viticulture industry after four generations, using the experience passed throw by their grandparents and parents. The production of their wines was performed with the compromise to keep the family tradition of three generations, using the most modern winemaking techniques available and concerned to maintain a cleaner planet for our children. The winery aims to make the best wines using ancient vessels with stainless steel tanks and state-of-the-art technology.
Breeze From the Pacific
Their vineyards in the Cachapoal Valley are present in Quemados, Los Molinos, La Torre and Las Rosas, with each one having their own qualities. The Mediterranean climate and terroir give the vineyards all they need to obtain exceptional wines. High temperature variability influenced by the coolness of the Pacific Ocean and the Cordillera de Los Andes, allows grapes to have the appropriate time they need to reach full ripeness conditions. The workers take a lot of care from pruning until the harvest of grapes. They try to protect natural resources, and there is strict water control. The main types of grapes that grow here are Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Merlot, Carmenere, Malbec, Carignan, Petit Verdot, Sauvignon blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio and Semillon. The best grapes help in making their traditional red, white, rose and dessert wines.
