Founded in 1856, Cousiño Macul is the only winery in Chile amongst those established in the 19th century that continues in the hands of the original founding family. The name of the winery is derived from the family name of its founder (Matías Cousiño), plus the name given to the area where the esrare was built, within the Maipo Valley: the company name implies “the Cousiño estate at Macul”. The Cousiño Macul winery is today governed by the sixth generation, direct descendents of its founder, Matías Cousiño. As said by Arturo Cousiño, Chairman of the Board of Directors, “Our objective is to produce world-class wines that are authentically Chilean, wines that have true varietal character and express the unique terroir of the Maipo Valley.

What to drink with... mushroom risotto.

Mushrooms frequently make a wine taste better than it might otherwise appear, maybe something to do with the fungus’s umami – that savoury pleasant flavour.

Given the risotto is quite creamy, a Pinot Noir and its acidity will work well, whether New World or Old World. Whites are supposedly the colour for risottos so try an oaked Chardonnay, or our choice Chenin Blanc Reserve from the Western Cape. Or how about our fruity refreshing rosé from Italy: Castello di Ama Rosato – at a whacking 13% it’s a red in pink clothing.
