Mingre

Mingre is pure elegance. Each varietal in this blend lends a unique element to build a complex, balanced wine. Grapes are gathered from carefully selected parcels on the Mingre estate, which produces our finest wines. Mingre has a deep red soil which is rocky and clayey due to the proximity of the Coastal Mountain range. We produce this wine with dedication and care, using grapes that have been hand-selected and harvested at less than 4,000 kilos per hectare to ensure the coloring that will withstand 14 to 18 month of aging in French oak barrels after fermentation.

About us

Company details

History.
 It all began in the 19th century when a young viticulturist from France named Emile Bouchon arrived in Chile. Many years later, now deeply rooted in the Maule Valley, Julio Bouchon and his children carry on the family tradition of creating distinctive, terroir-driven wines. 

Emile Bouchon Discovers Chile in the 19th Century
Our story begins with the dream of an adventurous young Frenchman almost a century and a half ago. At the age of 22, Emile Bouchon left his home – a community of small winemakers in Arveyres near Bordeaux, France – and boarded a boat headed for Chile. It was the spring of 1887.

Emile had been hired as a consulting winemaker by the Vigouroux Vineyard, which at that time was quite well-known in Chile. Here he stood out for the techniques and knowledge he had learned in France, and he soon began to make a name for himself as a winemaker.
