This delicate Pinot Noir is complex and elegant, with fine aromas of strawberry, cherry, orange peel and herbs, which combines perfectly with oak. Red berries, fresh and sweets are the first flavours in the palate, then cherries and soft tannins which linger in a long and persistent finish.

The Domaine
Viña Casa Marín is a family owned estate vineyard and winery located in the town of Lo Abarca, in the San Antonio Valley, Chile’s newest wine region of discovery. Described as “the most radical vineyard site in the country” in a recent article by Wine & Spirits Magazine, our estate is surrounded by Chile’s coastal mountain range as we are situated only 4 kilometers from the Pacific Ocean. These steep hills, with a unique climatic exposure and a wide variety of soils, give birth to a terroir only recently discovered for the viticulture of ultra premium fine wines.


Passion, resilience, endurance and entrepreneurship are all part of María Luz Marin’s personal and professional philosophy, which transcends into her winemaking. “We specialize in crafting wines that are different, unique and unrepeatable, maximizing to the fullest the potential from Lo Abarca, a truly specific terroir where icon ultra premium wines are born. These wines mature very well in the bottle and can be kept for years thanks to their appropriate structure and acidity for in-bottle evolution. As these wines can be opened immediately, in a short while or in a long while, they are right for collecting”.


The San Antonio Valley appellation is particularly influenced by marine climatic conditions, creating cooler temperatures which distinguish it from other appellations in Chile. This results in longer grape ripening periods, making it an ideal location for our wines to display unique characteristics.
