Suelos

Trabajamos cuidadosamente para tener suelos vivos, con nutrientes y micro organismos. Suelos sanos que nos permitan lograr un viñedo equilibrado y un plan de nutrición sostenible que garantice las necesidades de la planta. El aporte de nuestro propio compost, proveniente de la engorda y crianza de Angus en el sector oeste del campo, de material vegetal y orujo de proceso de vendimia es parte escencial de las tareas post cosecha. Esto nos permite mejorar nuestros suelos y aportar materia orgánica y nutrientes a la viña.

Incorporar restos de poda durante el invierno nos permite contar con una fuente de abono ecológico y aprovechar gran cantidad de nutrientes extraidos y que el material vegetal vuelva al suelo.

El uso de cultivo entre hileras en lo años más lluviosos, nos ayuda a proteger el suelo y generar una cubierta vegetal para evitar la erosión y colaborar a conservar la húmedad. También aporta. Nutrientes y mejoras a la biodiversidad del viñedo.

Biodiversity

Casas del Bosque has a rich ecosystem that reunites all the living beings that inhabit and coexist in our farm and vineyard. We have taken care of incorporating diverse species that interact directly and indirectly among them, and also with the native species of the estate.

Biodiversity has a unique value and is an essential part of our patrimony. We strive to conserve and preserve the stability of the ecosystems.

Preservation

Animales
y jardines

En nuestro ecosistema conviven diferentes animales, vacas Angus juegan un rol importante en las técnicas de viticultura sustentable, de donde proviene el guano que utilizamos para mejorar el suelo en el viñedo.

Amantes de los caballos, potrillos y yeguas nos ayudan a mantener los cerros y praderas libres de pasto, controlando las malezas para prevenir incendios en verano.

Ovejas además de ser muy tiernas, aportan en el control de malezas, disminuyendo el uso de herbicidas. Además contribuyen en nutrientes y materia orgánica.

Los gansos son los protagonistas en el Tranque Los Olivos quienes conviven e interacuan con los patos y aves silvestres del lugar.

Jardines rodean la bodega, caminos, Tranque Los Olivos y Casa Mirador; Lavandas, Gauras, Gramíneas, Pennisetum, Lirios y Rosas, entre otras flores cohabitan con los viñedos .

Alcornoques dan la bienvenida en la entrada principal, Crespones, Acer, Olivos, Maitenes, Cerezos en Flor son parte del paisajismo. Una pequeña plantación de Nogales nos entrega una producción limitada. De nueces que son cosechadas a mano con amor y pueden ser adquiridas en nuestro Wineshop.

Las abejas las queremos y cuidamos porque son parte importante de nuestro ecosistema, además de ser grandes polinizadores nos entregan miel orgánica y natural que esta disponible para que los visitantes puedan disfrutarla en nuestro restaurante y también en la tienda.

Corredores
biológicos

Los corredores biológicos al interior del viñedo permiten preservar el bosque nativo que es parte integral de la biodiversidad. Dentro de nuestro viñedo contamos con algunos de carácter natural que año a año podamos y limpiamos para su correcta preservación. Otros incorporan especies traídas como Rosas, Lavandas, Gauras y Pennisetum, las que benefician la proliferación de insectos y aportan al ecosistema, además contribuyen a generar un espacio de recreación y contemplación.

Los corredores biológicos minimizan el impacto ambiental y crean un hábitat seguro, que es compartido junto a las parras, hospedando enemigos naturales para las posibles plagas que pueden afectar el viñedo.

"...coexisten flora nativa
propia del lugar..."

Huerto
Orgánico

Es un espacio único y natural donde cultivamos durante todo el año nuestras propias hortalizas y especies, las cuales crecen en armonía con la naturaleza. Construimos jardineras de madera que fueron desarrolladas en conjunto con el emprendimiento social Sin Barrotes, que entrega una segunda oportunidad a personas privadas de libertad que trabajan en la cárcel.

Parte de nuestro compromiso con la sustentabilidad es siempre ir innovando en nuestros procesos. Hoy, muchos de los vegetales y hierbas que nuestro equipo gastronómico incorpora en sus recetas para Tanino provienen de este maravilloso lugar y esperamos seguir creciendo.

Huerto orgánico está pensado también en nuestras visitas y sus familias. Un espacio para aprender sobre la sabia naturaleza y de los diferentes cultivos, sus épocas del año y sus procesos.

Sustainable
Cellar

Our winemaking vision is based around the concept of wines that faithfully represent the site where they are born. We strive to give continuity to the philosophy of the vineyard into the cellar by practicing environmental responsibility. Our wines are made in a conscious way: they are all vegan friendly and we have also migrated our production into sustainable protocols.

We have a line of wines denominated “Botanic” which represent the most characteristic varieties of Casas del Bosque, and have been elaborated with the least possible intervention.

The cellar has an architectural design that contemplates energetic efficiency through the use of skylights and roof windows that help reduce electric consumption and ventilation.

A strict protocol ensures the correct manipulation of all the products of the vineyard, cellar and restaurant. We separate unusued materials, recycle and compost. Glass remnants are with drawn by the same company that produces it, and dangerous waste is managed by certified external companies.

All our labels are made using certified, biodegradable inks, while most of our wines use lightweight, ecoglass bottles. All our cardboard cases are recyclable.

All our Environmental Declarations are up to date and compliant with the Ministry of the Environment´s regulations.

Extended Producer´s Responsibility Law (R.E.P): We are committed with the goal of recovery and valorization, as well as with the compliance of the current regulations through regular trainings.

Sustainable
Tourism

We are leaders in wine tourism and today we are certified in sustainable tourism. We share with our visitors our philosophy of an integrated ecosystem.

Casas del Bosque invites everyone to explore our environment, and our programs incorporate visits to the most emblematic places of our vineyard, fomenting the contact with nature. We share and teach about our sustainable practices in the fields, vineyard and cellar.

Among the different experiences there are bike tours, pic-nic tables at the Los Olivos dam to enjoy the flora and fauna, and bird watching among many others, always inviting to contemplate and respect our animals and birds.

Casa Mirador is another place built with a sustainable architecture, and has a panoramic view of the vineyard, its biological corridors and the coastal mountain range. You can even appreciate the breezes coming from the Pacific Ocean.

It is in this place surrounded by nature that we teach about our native species, and we pay a special tribute to our centennial Espino tree, which is our main Brand Ambassador.

Our cuisine and gastronomic proposal at Tanino, Bo Bar and Casa Mirador makes use of sustainable practices as we privilege local producers for most of our preparations.

Water
Conservation

Water has always been a precious resource, and for years we have strived to develop a water conservation plan that drives hydric efficiency and conscious use of it by our team.

At the vineyard we have an efficient, technified drip irrigation system that feeds on subterranean wells that fill our dams. Most of them are covered with waterbags so as to reduce loss by evaporation, especially during the hot summer months. These waterbags also keep the water clean, ensuring each plant recieves optimal hydration.

We have a differentiated irrigation program that is monitored daily according to weather conditions, soil humidity, time of the year and needs of each plant. Every block, depending on the variety, is optimally managed in order to produce quality grapes. We have daily consumption readings based on measurers and flowmeters.

We constantly train our winemaking, production and wine tourism staff so that efficiency is sought in every process. During harvest, where traditionally water consumption spikes, we have water usage goals that have helped use reduce consumption. There is a strict protocol involving the use of water guns to wash barrels, and all the water used at the facility is treated and reused to irrigate our gardens.

Green areas around the estate have drip irrigation systems and low consumption plants. Our gardens privilege the use of low consumption species and a limited use of grass.

Community

We are commited to the protection of our surroundings with the help of our colaborators as well as every human group we interact with. We are constantly looking into ways to develop a production facility that is efficient, sustainable and inclusive. This commitment is present in everything we do as we understand that our activities need to be sustainable over time, contributing to the development of our country and the well being of current and future generations.

We permanently train our collaborators in different areas, from sustainability to responsible alcohol consumption.

We actively participate year after year on every activity conducted by the Casablanca Viticultural Association, promoting the wine production of the valley as well as the wine tourism in the area.

We are actively involved in the community through actions with local schools such as the Liceo Bicentenario Municipal Manuel de Salas, supporting children´s learning as well as their personal and professional development; providing internship opportunities, guided tours, formative programs and sustainability conferences. Since 2020 we are part of the board of the Entrepreneurial Consultancy Council (C.A.E.) which seeks to support alumni into finding jobs among the local companies based in Casablanca once they graduate.

We support many foundations and institutions: the Chilean Adoption Foundation, ANSPAC Foundation, “Desafio Levantemos Chile” Foundation and “Soy Mas” Foundation among others.

We also sponsor integral development programs at the first infancy level in Casablanca through the Liguria Foundation, owned and founded by the Cuneo family.
