Sucre is born on the most traditional wine valleys of Chile, vineyards located between the two big mountain ranges: the Andes and its smaller sister, the Cordillera de la Costa (coastal mountain range).
Its grapes are also the most emblematic of the country, and in the Sucre range we seek to produce wines that refers to our beginnings in this amazing country. If our Tunquen wines are the representation of the cold Chilean coast, Sucre reminds us of the hot summer days in the southern Colchagua and Maule regions.
The poet Carlos Covarrubias was inspired by love and the Chilean sky when he wrote this poem specially to SUCRE
“Dicen que las estrellas del sur rugen de día, hablan de noche, gimen al amanecer.
Dicen que esperan, que ansian, que siempre están atentas al amor de los hombres.
Cuentan que sólo de ahí les nace el fulgor y el brillo.
La esperanza es fresca, la sorpresa tímida, nosotros incautos como las alas de la risa;
Tu matinal desplegando las fragancias de la noche brava”
