For many years, Juan Cuneo Solari, the son of an Italian immigrant, dreamed of having his own vineyards to produce the best quality wines.
At a time when the Chilean wine industry was pursuing quantity over quality, Mr. Cuneo sought special features and distinctive qualities for a Premium Wine production.
In 1993, he finally founded his winery in the Casablanca Valley, Casas del Bosque. He was one of the first to use the area for this purpose. Since then, the valley has seen a boom in popularity, and Casas del Bosque has become one of the few family wineries of the valley.
The great forests of ancient pine and olive plants and the small, abandoned white adobe houses were the key factors in determining the location of the vineyard and the manor house, giving it the name Casas del Bosque, or “Houses of the Forest.”
