To dare to make wines with absolute freedom…

The Bouchon family has been producing wine in Chile’s famous Maule Valley for over 120 years to great acclaim. Las Mercedes is the personal wine project of brothers Julio and Juan and sister Maria. The name is taken from the 17th Century land grants (Mercedes) that were bestowed by the Spanish Crown upon hardworking entrepreneurs who went on to plant the first vines in the valley. This young family team makes wines in the pioneering spirit of those early grape growers and winemakers, and their philosophy is summarized thus: "… to dare to make wines with absolute freedom". We like that!

At Las Bodegas we’ve considered taking on premium wines from Chile on a number of previous occasions, but none that we tasted really came up to the mark or ‘felt’ right. These wines certainly do, and we feel that Chile is turning a corner. With Her reputation founded so firmly on lower priced wines for so long, Chile's upper echelons can be a tough sell, we know that, but wines like these are leading the charge and helping to change perceptions. We are convinced Las Mercedes has a great future in the UK and we are delighted to represent them.
