Kingston Family Vineyards

Boutique and family-owned winery located in Chile's Casablanca Valley

Product ID: 287
Description

Discover Kingston Family Vineyards, a boutique winery located in Chile's Casablanca Valley on the farm that has been in the family for more than a century.
 
In the early 1900s, mining engineer Carl John Kingston left his home in Michigan looking for gold in Chile. While he never found his fortune in gold, his search yielded a cattle ranch in Casablanca Valley, just 12 miles from the Pacific. Five generations later, his descendants are showing the same pioneering spirit on “The Farm”. But instead of prospecting for gold, they’re exploring new frontiers in Chilean winemaking.
 
Growing red wine grapes in a valley known for white wines, Kingston Family Vineyard has been called “one of the area’s most promising producers”.
 



Today, Kingston Family Vineyards has been recognised as "among the best wineries in Chile" (Stephen Tanzer) and for "making some of Chile's best pinots" (Food & Wine).


In 2011, the Kingstons were chosen to host a James Beard dinner in New York City, and named "Winery of the Year" by Wine & Spirits Magazine. Their wines have been featured on wine lists at top restaurants including "Jean Georges" in...

Kingston Family Vineyards blends the best of the Old and New World winemaking as they handcraft small-production lots of Pinot Noir, Syrah, and Sauvignon Blanc from the cool climate, hillside vineyards in Casablanca Valley. While coastal Casablanca is mostly known for its whites, they are pioneering the introduction of cool-climate reds.


Kingston Vineyards is one of a handful of Chilean vineyards leveraging Californian viticulture and winemaking expertise to uncover the potential of the Chilean terroir.  
 
The winery offers tours and tastings at the winery in addition to hosting large private events.
Please note: Tours run daily at 10am, 12pm, 2pm, or 4pm.
