The “LOTA” project started in 2003, when the Cousiño family decided to create a world class wine for the 150th anniversary. Lota gathers two passions of the family: the coal mining and wines. Both began in the XIX century and were the starting point of the great legacy of this traditional family. Lota is a wine that combines tradition, the history of the Cousiño and the distinctive elegance of the Cousiño-Macul wines, with the cohesion of a winemaking team that is guided by excellence.
2010 was a difficult season, according to our viticulturist Ms. Carole Dumont: “We had a very cool spring, followed by an extremely dry and hot summer and a harvest that began very late comparing it with the last year, nevertheless we managed to overcome all these variables and we are very pleased with this harvest.” Rosario Palma, winemaker, says that the 2010 vintage wines will be outstanding in all varieties. The reds will highlight for their maturity, smoothness and consistency, especially Cabernet Sauvignon.
