Casa Marin winery: first female winemaker of Chile
Casa Marin is in the small village of Lo Abarca in San Antonio Valley, around 4 km. away from the Pacific Ocean. The owner Maria Luiz is the first female winery owner of Chile and, after completing her studies, opened the first cool climate winery along the Pacific Coast. Casa Marin’s wines are internationally acclaimed and stand out because of their great taste and high-quality.
Maria’s son, Felipe Marin, joined her mother at the winery, and together they work hard to make premium, award-winning Chilean wines
A stone’s throw to the sea
Lo Abarca is close to the ocean, and therefore the climate here is cool. Almost all of the 41 hectares of vineyards are on steep slopes. This creates the perfect combination of terroir, soils, temperature, and sunlight that is perfect for cultivating vines. The low temperatures, poor and mineral soils, and low average yields of 4 tons per hectare result in concentrated grapes, producing elegant wines high in acidity and low pH. Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Gris, Syrah, Gewurztraminer, Riesling, and Garnacha grapes grow here and are used to make their red, white, and rose wines.
Committed to sustainable techniques
Casa Marin winery is equipped with 31 stainless steel tanks that have their own temperature sensors, crushing machine, 240 new French oak barrels, a conveyor belt, and an automatic temperature controlling system. The company is committed to using sustainable techniques in all phases of winemaking. Casa Marin’s premium wines have surprising and unique flavors that show the distinct qualities of the terroir and high-level winemaking skills.
