Vineyard Casa Bauzá

Lorenzo Bauzá



Coming from Mallorca, Spain, Lorenzo Bauzá Juan arrived in Combarbalá and then in Coquimbo, where he started his own nut company, whose success allowed him to acquire land in the fourth region of the country. His interest in the wine sector led him to buy two distilleries, one in Vallenar and one in Varillar, developing a straw under his name.


Funda Agroproductos Bauzá y Cía., Ltda. with which it begins to market a pisco under its same name. After his death at an early age, his only son, Lorenzo Bauzá Álvarez, was in charge of family businesses, managing to increase the sale of his pisco, which he would later call Bauzá.


Based on its well-known quality and the international awards that it was already beginning to obtain in Spain in the early 1980s, the pisco business was rapidly growing. In this way Lorenzo Bauzá focused on high-end piscos, being the driver of this niche in the Chilean market.

The character of high quality artisanal pisco led pisco Bauzá to become one of the most renowned piscos and wanted by connoisseurs of good distillate. His constant innovation later led him to increase his plantations by implementing technical irrigation, thus taking advantage of the water coming from the immediate thaws of the Andes Mountains. These grapes grow in a valley of fertile lands, optimal for the cultivation of the vine.

In the late 1990s

Don Lorenzo embarks on a new adventure, planting the Pelán vineyard, this time further south, in Til Til, north of the Maipo Valley to get his wine from there. They were many years of rehearsals and tests with her friend Irene Paiva, in which they vinified parts of the different vineyard barracks until in 2011 they found the first mix of Casa Bauzá. This is how one of the projects most desired by Don Lorenzo was born, today led by Rodrigo Bauzá, and supported by Irene Paiva as an advisor.
