In the early 1900S Carl John Kingston, packed up his bags to make the months-long journey from Michigan to Chile

Early 1900s

In 1906, Carl John Kingston left his home in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan looking for gold in Chile. While he and his wife Caroline never found his motherlode, their search did yield a cattle ranch in the western hills of Casablanca just 12 miles from the Pacific.  Five generations and more than a century later, their descendants are showing the same pioneering spirit as they explore new frontiers in Chilean winemaking.
