Marques de Casa Concha
Marques de Casa Concha is a line of Chilean wines launched in 1976 in honour of the noble title conferred upon the Concha y Toro family in 1718 by King Felipe V of Spain. The wines encompass the country’s diversity and embodies Concha y Toro's culture and tradition in the art of winemaking. The grapes are grown in vineyards in which the complex interplay between natural conditions, vineyard planning, and the age of the vines endows the entire line with unique character.
Marques de Casa Concha has become one of the most quality consistent wines, attracting international recognition year after year. Winemaker Marcelo Papa carefully selects the most suitable vineyard locations for each individual varietal to thrive. The use of a variety of small oak barrels from some of the best cooperages in France allows Marcelo to achieve an elegant and harmonious style of wines, which soften beautifully with age.
Marcelo holds a Degree in Oenology from the Catholic University of Chile and has a developed a successful career at Viña Concha y Toro, where he is now the Technical Director. He has been in charge of the Casillero del Diablo line since 1998. The following year, he took on one of the most prestigious and traditional brands in Chile: Marques de Casa Concha. When taking on this series, Marcelo Papa implemented technical improvements in the agricultural and winemaking techniques, which significantly enhanced the quality of Marques de Casa Concha, making it a highly sought out wine around the world, which looks to convey the great concentration and character of the grapes from traditional vineyards.
The many awards and high praise this outstanding line has earned over the years confirms it as one of the world’s most consistent and solid lines in its segment. In 2016, they celebrated their 40th anniversary and continuous commitment to making wines of extraordinary quality with a strong focus on innovation.
