Hugo Casanova

Coming from the north of Italy, the first members of the Casanova Family arrived in Chile at the end of the 19th Century, with the purpose of continuing with the noble tradition of producing wines of excellence. Eliseo Casanova acquired the “Batuco” and “Beautiful valley” estates in the Itata Valley, where his dreams began. His son Aldo, attracted by the exceptional conditions for vine growing in the Maule region purchased the “Purisima estate”, allowing for the production of unique and unmistakable wines.

Years later, Don Aldo, followed by his son Hugo Eliseo took over the running of the company, introducing new vinification technologies and improving the vine production systems. He was the precursor of the successful development of the international markets. In 1999 his son Hugo Andrés joined him and together their “boutique winery” concept was conceived.

Their passion for wines goes above and beyond and their hard work is reflected in the quality and elegance of the wine they produce.

Maule Valley

The Maule Valley was one of the first areas in Chile where vines were planted and its viticulture history stretches back to the start of colonisation. The valley was originally known for the quantity more that the quality of its wines, but in recent years it has attracted renewed attention. Since the mid-1990s, new technologies have been introduced, allowing the region to improve the quality of its wines. Despite this, some of Maule's old techniques have survived and the region is fast becoming known for some 70-year-old Carignan vines that are being used to produce soft, earthy red wines with rich plum and black-fruit flavours.

Maule lies at the southern end of the Central Valley and is one of the coolest wine producing areas in Chile, although the Maule River flowing east to west has a moderating effect on the climate. The river also provides the different alluvial soil types found around the region, which included granite, red clay, loam and gravel. On the slopes where the vines grow, the soils are free-draining and more fertile on the valley floor.

Many hectares are grown organically and have been certified as organic for decades. The Maule Valley produces good value everyday wines of quality that has been improving over the years. There are also old-bush, dry-farmed vineyards that produce naturally balanced field blends of Carignan, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, and other yet to be identified varieties. Newer plantations include Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Carménère with bright acidity and juicy fruit notes.
