Bodegas Tagua Tagua
Located in Chile's famous Rapel Valley, Bodegas Tagua Tagua takes its name from the nearby town of San Vincente de Tagua Tagua. With vineyard plots in the Colchagua, Cachapoal and Maule valleys, Tagua Tagua wines are excellent expressions of Chile's diverse terroirs.
The wine represents the perseverance of those who managed to overcome Chile's intense terrain and fierce climate to produce world-quality wines.
The Correa family has been making wine on their family farm for five generations, with over 100 years of experience behind them. Their legacy in the Chilean wine industry dates back to the mid-1800s as one of the pioneering wine families in the country.
First-generation José Gregorio Correa Albano was the original founder of Viña San Pedro, one of Chile's most world-renowned wine producers. Soon after, he founded the winery known today as Bodegas Tagua Tagua.
All Tagua Tagua wines are made from their own vineyards, which include a number of plots in the Central Valley, ranging from 7 to 150 hectares in size and 25 to 70 years old.
Tagua Tagua wine is so sought after in the local industry that they even supply wine to a particularly famous Chilean brand that is not allowed to be named due to strict contractual requirements.
Their mission is to provide a socially sustainable business for all the families of their farm and their community, while preserving their wild and natural environment by using winemaking techniques and farming practices that are in harmony with nature.
Sustainability is a key factor in every stage of their production, with great care taken to minimise waste and hardly any pesticides in the vineyard. They consider themselves one of the most environmentally conscious wineries in Chile.
The Tagua Tagua wine range ranges from everyday easy drinkers to cellar-worthy reds that will stand the test of time. Multiple critics from different countries have praised the wines. See for yourself here.
