Originally from a small town called Chiusa di Pesio, an Italian town located in the Piedmont Region, our ancestors left their wine-producing lands to undertake and seek better opportunities in Mendoza, Argentina, initially arriving in Chile at the beginning of the last century to also settle in a zone of “grapes”. Several generations later, and going back in history, which brings us to the present, the Piantini family bought the vineyards located in the Cachapoal Valley from those who were the founders of Winery Lagar de Bezana.
Hand in hand with its new owners, in 2017, the story and transformation of Lagar began. Along with the review of its processes and modernization of its facilities and winery, the idea of renaming it to give a more proper meaning to its origin and roots also arises. This is how Lagar de Codegua Terroir, Winery Familiar Boutique, was reborn to modify its name, vision, and purpose, together with all those who are part of it, and to begin a journey towards creating premium-quality wines to take them to new markets and consumers, both in Chile and around the world.
Cristian is an Agricultural Engineer from the Pontifical Catholic University of Chile, Winemaker with more than 20 years of experience in the Cachapoal valley.
