- Other Info:
- Viña Casa Silva was founded by the Bouchon family in 1997. Emilio Bouchon was the first to arrive in Chile from St. Emilion, Bordeaux, France, in 1892, and his family has been making wine there ever since. They were pioneers in the Colchagua Valley, although it was not until 1997 that Mario Pablo Silva, the oldest son of the fifth generation, and his father, Mario Silva, set about recovering the old vineyards and wine cellar and began to acquire a unique understanding of the terroir in the Colchagua Valley. Mario Silva's other sons, Francisco, Gonzalo, and Raimundo joined soon thereafter and contributed to the development of Viña Casa Silva. And so began the new family winery and the process of modernizing all of the activities that took place within it. Today Viña Casa Silva is one the most award-winning Chilean wineries in the 21st century.
Casa Silva have launched three special boutique wines from Lake Ranco, the southernmost vineyards in Chile. Mario Pablo Silva said, "In 2006 our continual quest for innovation led us to decide to plant vineyards in this wonderful place and we became the first Chilean winery to produce wines from vineyards with a DOC from this remote part of Southern Chile."
Elegant and expressive on the nose with fruity notes of lime, pear and green pepper, interspersed with intense freshness from Lake Ranco and the Andes. Rich and elegant on the palate with a lingering acidity and mineral notes.
