Casas del Bosque owns in the Casablanca Valley a total of 227 planted hectares, of which 219 are are currently in full production. Our pure varieties, which have been produced and selected throughout the years, are distributed as follows:
Sauvignon Blanc: 50% of our vineyard
Pinot Noir: 25%
Chardonnay and Syrah: 20%
Riesling and Malbec: 5%
On our farm, we develop other agricultural activities, such as livestock management. As of this, we produce compost that provides organic matter and nutrients for the vineyard’s soils.
The biological corridors also play a very important role in conservation. Within its boundaries, we generate an ecosystem that allows native plants to share their space with the vineyards and, in that habitat, lodge the natural enemies of various plagues and diseases that may affect the crops.
Both the biological corridors and the native flora and fauna conservation areas also allow us to control potential diseases and pests in a natural way.
In our Los Olivos reservoir, apart from native flora such as lavender, roses and guaras, it is also possible to find wild geese and ducks that cohabit with other typical bird species, such as queltehues, owls and kestrels.
At Casas del Bosque we manage a waste protocol for the correct handling of all wastes generated in the fields and in the winery: we classify and separate waste material, using methods of recycling and composting as well.
We are certified by the Sustainability Code of the Chilean Wine Industry. Subscribing this code is mainly a challenge to:
• Plan, implement and maintain an integrated management system with the aim of achieving a sustainable wine production.
• Reduce possible impacts on the environment that could eventually occur during the production process.
• Guard the interactions of our workers with the company, sheltered by a Code of Ethics.
• Optimize the communication with our clients and suppliers, as well as with all the communities close to our vineyard.
• Aim to always correct and improve our management and performance.
