Vineyards

Casas del Bosque estate has 222,2 hectares planted in Casablanca Valley. 206,36 hectares are currently producing, and Casas del Bosque’s greatest strength is that all our grapes are estate grown.

Our very high quality Carménère and Cabernet Sauvignon come from the Rapel and Maipo Valley.

Irrigation System

All our vineyards have a modern drip irrigation system, which brings water up from underground wells. We cared each block differently, depending on the vine type, soil and climate. For red wines, we carry out a controlled water stress to get the smallest water droplets in order to obtain the highest concentrations of flavors and aromas.

Vineyard Management

Modern technology helps Casas del Bosque to use its natural resources efficiently and to maintain the sustainability of the vineyards. Weed, disease and pest control obey to an integrated management strategy. It means to apply the fewest chemical products possible to the soil, to restrict the application of pesticides by monitoring, to apply herbicides only to the planting row, and to control weeds through machine to the rest of the surface In the field, we manage water responsibly and the decision of irrigation depends on the visual appearance of the plant, foliage measurements with pressure chambers and the use of humidity sensors.

Cluster Thinning

In keeping with our philosophy based on producing high quality wines, we do cluster thinning in order to maintain the desired yield for each variety. The best clusters are then selected in order to meet our winemakers’ standards.
