Pioneered by Maria-Luz Marin in 1999 when she planted the first vineyards in the Lo Abarca Valley located in San Antonio, Casa Marin produces a small quantity of fine wine. Over a decade of incredible passion and commitment from Maria Luz and her family has resulted in a neat range of varietal wines that are expressive and impressive.
The estate comprises 40 hectares of vineyards divided in to 33 plots of land that are managed separately revealing individual characteristics. The vineyards benefit from a unique maritime influence creating a cooler climate and longer grape ripening period so suitable for aromatic varietals such as Sauvignon Blanc. This translates in to intensely mineral wines that express the dream of Maria-Luz, who has been recognised internationally for her sensitive winemaking and excellent pure wines.
It gives us a huge amount of pleasure to pioneer these distinctive cool climate fine wines from Chile and we hope you will fall for them as much as we have.
