“Casa Silva is among the finest producers of top class premium Chilean wines” commented the Managing Director of Barry & Fitzwilliam Michael Barry, “The addition of Casa Silva to our current portfolio will give our customers an unrivalled choice of premium wines from Chile.”
Viña Casa Silva was born in 1997 following an old familiar longing to project, on a bottle of wine, the love and affection of a family for their land, the Colchagua Valley.
With Don Emilio Bouchon, the first generation came to Chile in 1892 from Bordeaux, St Emilion. Since then the family has been devoted to the production of wine pioneering in the Colchagua Valley. But it was not until 1997 that Mario Pablo Silva, eldest son of the fifth generation, shared with his father Mario the dream of producing wine under their own brand.
The latter had devoted much of his life to the recovery of ancient vineyards and wineries, gaining a unique understanding of the terroir of the Colchagua Valley.
Barry & Fitzwilliam now claims to be Ireland’s largest independent drinks distributor, carrying over 100 international premium brands of wines, spirits and beer. The portfolio includes products from the multinational drinks groups Beam Suntory, Jagermeister, Accolade Wines, McGuigan Wines, Rémy Cointreau, ILLVA Saronno, Edrington, Villa Maria and now Casa Silva.
