Quick Overview

Cousiño Macul wines are produced, vinified and bottled at source, a characteristic in common with the great wineries of the world. The whites are known for their elegance, fruity richness and balanced acidity, while the reds are recognized for their roundness, balancing varietal fruitiness, body, complexity, deep color and excellent acidity. The correct mix of these elements gives rise to wines that can be drunk young, but also have the capacity to age and mature.

Family owned since 1856, Cousiño Macul is one of the 'grandees' of Chilean wineries, the estate complete with racing stables extends to some 267 hectares of vineyards, situated between the sprawling suburbs of Santiago and the wall of the Andes Cordillera.


The grapes for this blend are selected from the oldest Cabernet Sauvignon vines in Cuccino and the finest Merlot. The Cabernet Sauvignon, planted in 1932, has the same unique DNA that the founder of the winery, Don Luis Cousino, brought from France in the 1860s. This is the vine that was planted in Europe before the phylloxera. The natural yield is 4 tons per hectare. After the grapes are ripe, they are picked by hand, packed in 10kg boxes, and sorted again at the cellar. After 7 days of cold maceration at 7°C, the alcoholic fermentation starts for 7-10 days, with the fermentation temperature of Merlot at 25°C and Cabernet Sauvignon at 26°C, during which gravity pump over 3-4 times. It is then divided into new small oak barrels for several months, where the malolactic fermentation is completed. After 15 months, the winemaker decides which wines to use in the blend. For the entire process, the wine spends 18 months in oak barrels and then ages in bottle for at least 3 years.
