Casa Marín’s story began with its founder, owner, and winemaker, María Luz Marín’s dream.
Nothing describes this winery better than the story of a woman who persevered to create fine and exclusive wines. In 2000, against advice from colleagues and experts, she decided to establish her winery in Lo Abarca, a small town in the San Antonio Valley. Despite warnings about problems with location, the cool climate, and people’s disbelief, she was successful in developing a vineyard and winery whose wines have received numerous world awards, helping position Chile in a distinct light with its high quality, high value wines.
Her son, Felipe Marín, follows in her footsteps as a winemaker. Together they have created the most awarded Chilean wines outside of the country in the icon and premium categories, and they dedicate themselves exclusively to the winery. In general, it is the Marín family team – siblings and children – who continue to passionately support this boutique winery’s growth.
