Tunquen was started in 2010 by a Brazilian couple, Marco Attilio and Angela Mochi. They met more than 20 years ago, when they attended classes at the UNICAMP Faculty of Food Engineering, in Brazil. They eventually built a restaurant, wine shop, and a wine import company before deciding to move to Chile to start their winery. They produce cool climate coastal wines from the Casablanca Valley and create wines that reflect their own individual personality. They craft unique, un-manipulated, multi-layered and complex wines that speak to the terroir and the purity of the varietal. They strive to let the wines shine on their own through the use of neutral oak and indigenous yeast. They have their hands in every part of the process from vineyard to bottling, and produce very limited batches so they can ensure the quality and complexity of the finished wine. The sustainable focused and eco-minded couple live in a refurbished, recycled 40ft old insulated shipping container on their 5 acre property. The wine storage and barrel room are also in these containers, with hopes in the future to build a winery and a small tasting room out of this re-usable resource. They are proud members of MOVI.
