About us

Bodega Ruca Malén was born in 1998 as the result of the dream of two friends who shared the same passion: to make high-quality wines. Jacques Louis de Montalembert and Jean Pierre Thibaud decided to base this project on their experience and professional background in the beverage industry. The search for quality has been present at every milestone in the winery: its location and architectural design, the work team selection, the technological equipment, the excellent service offered to visitors and mainly, the management, care and treatment of the vineyard, where great wines come from under the experienced eye of the winemaker Pablo Cúneo.

Ruca Malén`s main goal of positioning itself as a referent in the domestic market has already been achieved. In this new stage, the challenge is to consolidate its presence abroad. Therefore, Ruca Malén is carrying out a foreign trade strategy, which is close to come true once the wines arrive in new markets, apart from the current export destinations.

Ruca Malén's style is translated into elegant, complex and balanced wines that match and enhance meals while letting them shine. This characteristic is perceived as an intense and fresh fruity aroma with a certain complexity granted by its oak aging. The names of the winery and its wine ranges come from Mapuche language. Ruca Malén means “the young girl's house”, while Yauquén makes reference to the ritual of sharing and Kinién to the fact of being “unique”, a characteristic that defines the spirit of this wine regarding high-quality standards.
