No doubt, the location is excellent. And the two cottages are romantic and very well kept. The smaller one is the better choice, but this is a question of taste. The income service is friendly. And the winery is specialiced of high level wines. Of course they are expensive. So far so good. But be carefull what Casa Marin offers... More

I love this winery. I have some friends who live locally and know the owners.

Wine was one of the greatest we tasted on our trip. Jamie is a great presenter. Worthwhile to make a side trip from Casablanca valley

Great opportunity if you want to spend the $ (wine geeks only?) for a vertical of sauv blanc or pinot with the wine maker. Quite a variety of soils right on sight. Unique for Chile in their coastal setting. You can also stay here. Warning: their english language directions left out one turn from Casablanca Valley, although the map on... More

We visited four wine regions in October in Chile and this winery was our favourite. Where to start? First Osvaldo Marin (brother of the owner) was a wonderful guide for the two of us. So informative, such depth of knowledge, so proud of his family's endeavors and a true gentleman in every way. The tasting room is one of the... More

I first discovered Casa Marin on a list of "world's best winery hotels". Little did I know that, when we left the Colchagua Valley (the "best" wine region in Chile, according to conventional wisdom) to take the 3 hour drive north-west to Lo Abarca, we'd be stumbling on to the biggest (and most delightful) surprise of our trip: the wine...

We were given a tour of the winery, the wine-making process, the bottling process, and got to sample some of their award-winning wines. Good luck finding a better bottle of pinot noir or sauvignon blanc! My only dislike is the fact that I couldn't taste everything that they make or take enough with me when I flew back home.

We had an excellent tour at Casa Marin! Violeta was so helpful and responsive in organizing the tour and they remained open late for us because we got super lost getting there (dont rely on Google maps, apparently Waze is better). Osvaldo was a very informative tour guide and the wines were amazing, especially the Pinot Noir and Sauv Gris.... More

At the start of the harvest season visiting a winery is always wonderful. The temperatures are still great and you already get an idea of what the new wines are going to bring. We went to the winery with a group and were able to pick some grapes ourselves and tasted them as well. It looks like we are getting... More

We spent two nights at the Casa Marin winery and enjoyed the cottage, wine, food and especially our tour. We have a small commercial vineyard in Canada and really enjoyed a very informative vineyard tour by Marilu, the owner, and two of her staff.
