Bouchon history begins with an adventurous young French man’s dream almost a century and a half ago. Emile Bouchon left his little home of small winegrowers in Arveyres, near Burdeos, France, to board on a ship, towards Chile in the spring of 1887.
Emile came hired as a winemaker adviser and throughout many years of efforts, he achieved to own an antique wine cellar in Colchagua Valley, turning it into one of the most prominent vineyards of that age, tradition that his children Antonio and Abel would continue.
The vineyards in Mingre has a planted area of 50 hectares with vineyards of Cabernet Sauvignon (32%), Chardonnay (26%), Carmenere (22%), Cabernet Franc (4%), Petit Verdot (4%), Syrah (4%), Carignan (4%), País (2%), Garnacha (1%) and Mouvedre (1%). The plantations have an East-West orientation, and are trained on vertical trellises to capture the maximum solar radiation in the canopies. 52% of the orchards are irrigated by drip irrigation through deficit irrigation, measured by calicatas. Emile was hired as an oenological advisor and after many years of effort he managed to acquire an old winery in the Colchagua Valley, transforming it into one of the most renowned wineries of the time, a tradition that his sons Antonio and Abel would continue.
