Coming from the north of Italy, the first members of the Casanova Family arrived in Chile at the end of the 19th Century, with the purpose of continuing with the noble tradition of producing wines of excellence. Eliseo Casanova acquired the “Batuco” and “Beautiful valley” estates in the Itata Valley, where his dreams began. His son Aldo, attracted by the exceptional conditions for vine growing in the Maule region purchased the “Purisima estate”, allowing for the production of unique and unmistakable wines.
Years later, Don Aldo, followed by his son Hugo Eliseo took over the running of the company, introducing new vinification technologies and improving the vine production systems. He was the precursor of the successful development of the international markets. In 1999 his son Hugo Andrés joined him and together their “boutique winery” concept was conceived.
Their passion for wines goes above and beyond and their hard work is reflected in the quality and elegance of the wine they produce.

Leyda Valley is a small sub-region of the San Antonio Valley wine region in Chile, located just 55 miles west of the Chilean capital, Santiago. This cool-climate region enjoys the effects of the cold Humboldt Current of the Pacific Ocean, and consequently produces bright, vibrant wines.
Leyda is one of Chile's up-and-coming wine regions, and has attracted a lot of attention from international wine commentators and critics over the past few years. As well as producing some of Chile's most respected Pinot Noir and Chardonnay wines, the region is also responsible for excellent examples of Sauvignon Blanc and Syrah.
