The Marques wine started in 1976, originally with a cabernet sauvignon, becoming the flagship of the company for quite some time. Over the years other varieties were added, white and red. The latest addition to the range was Pais Cinsault (85% Pais grape and 15% Cinsault) in 2014. The Maipo valley has a rich history of wine making and being so close to Santiago and its capital, it is home to numerous prestigious wine makers, such as Cousino Macul, Santa Rita, as well as Concha Y Toro.
