Settled in the heart of Casablanca Valley, Quintay winery has succeeded in enhancing the popularity of Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir consumption worldwide by creating values that far exceed the quality to price ratio. A mirror image of the central coast of California, Chile has also embarked on the opportunity to produce cool climate Syrah and Chardonnay with fruit forward complexity and balanced acidity. Casablanca represents an ideal ground for growing all of these varietals with temperatures rarely exceeding 77 degrees Fahrenheit. The Humboldt Current in the Pacific creates a cooling effect in the evenings from the close proximity to the sea. Intense luminosity during the day creates a conducive environment for polyphenolic maturity.The rolling fog helps create a longer and slower ripening of the vines. Winemaker Ximena Klein pulls from several vineyard sites to create the optimal balance in each wine.
