Legend
In the Maule region, one of the oldest
winegrowing regions in Chile,
it is common to hear talk among the locals
about the legend of the “Convento Viejo.”

The convent was a colonial structure from the 17th century with majestic airtight doors behind which, so it is said, old-world Franciscan monks jealously guarded a spiritual tradition. This ancient secret was a wine made from old growth vines, the grapes macerated in clay basins. The mystical concoction fortified the body and the spirit, bringing happiness and good health to all that drank it.
In order to acquire this precious mead, the residents of Maule would leave an empty jug outside their houses, hoping to find it spilling over with wine the next day. When their fervent wish was granted, they invited their neighbors and friends that same night to come share the miraculous gift and give thanks to life.
Today, more than 300 years later, Bouchon Family Wines has salvaged the essence of the secret of the Old Convent, a legend deeply rooted in Maule and its people, to present an authentic wine which invites us to gather our friends and share this extraordinary legacy captured within each bottle.
