Bouchon Winery

It all began in the 19th century when a young viticulturist from France named Emile Bouchon arrived in Chile. Many years later, now deeply rooted in the Maule Valley, Julio Bouchon and his children carry on the family tradition of creating distinctive, terroir-driven wines.

The wineyards in the area of 370 ha can be found some 250 km to the south from Santiago in the Maule Valley. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Carmenere, Malbec, Syrah, Sauvignon Blanc, and Chardonay are being cultivated there. The majority of wineyards was founded 60 years ago and, by hand-picking, the produce 7 – 8 metric tons of excelent-quality grapes for the wines of intensive colour and fruity smell.

Maule Valley is endowed with excelent climatic and soil conditions for the growing of grapevine. It rains in winters, the summers are sunny and dry with big differencies of the temperature during the days and nights (32 and 20°C). The wineyards are equiped with the system of the drop-watering.

The winery is equiped by the top australian technology. Its capacity is 3,5 milions liters in stainless tanks and it disposes of the cellars with the drums of French oak for the aging of the wines (reserva and gran reserva).
