Viña Casa Marín was founded in 2000 by winemaker Maria Luz Marín, who had one thing in mind: making 'terroir wines' in Chile. Her project was innovative and daring, but she is now loved and praised and an example for many others in Chile! María Luz is the first female winemaker and winery in Chile. After graduating from the University of Chile with a degree in agronomy and winemaking, Maria Luz worked in several wineries, not the least of which was having worked for Romanee Contie. She has successfully positioned her fine delicate wines in the top markets and among international critics, where they stand out for their high quality. Vina Casa Marin is currently one of the top from Chile and is a model of beautiful elegant cool-climate wines.

Sauvignon gris is a mutation of sauvignon blanc. This grape has a pinkish, fairly thick skin that protects it against (fungal) diseases. It has a little more body and structure than its 'blanc' brother. The Estero soil contains loam, volcanic material and some clay that provide just enough nutrients to develop the voluptuous structure that makes this sauvignon gris wine so beloved. The wine is 50% aged in large (500 litres), used French oak barrels. This wood is well integrated into the complex flavor.

In the glass, Sauvignon Gris Viñedo Estero has a straw yellow color and an exotic and spicy nose with some honey and yellow fruit. Round and firm taste, with melon, some pepper and a light toast from the wood, followed by a long and refreshing finish. A very gourmet wine!

This is a delicious wine with blanched white asparagus with thinly sliced raw salmon and a spicy dressing of Thai curry with lime and red pepper.

Vineyard for 2022 Viña Casa Marín Sauvignon Gris Viñedo Estero

Viña Casa Marín was founded in 2000 by winemaker Maria Luz Marín, who had one thing in mind: making 'terroir wines' in Chile. Her project was innovative and daring, but she is now loved and praised and an example for many others in Chile! For several years, María Luz has been assisted by her son Felipe, a winemaker who gives shape to his mother's dream with the same passion and drive. Today the domain has 50 hectares of vineyard divided into 38 different plots. Much of the vineyard is located on limestone and granite soils. These conditions result in vines that can produce superior quality fruit. All grapes are harvested by hand, only when they are perfectly ripe. Due to the great diversity in terroirs and grape varieties, coupled with the cool climate, the harvest takes a very long time; from the beginning of March to the end of May! All harvested grapes are vinified separately in small vats.
