The Kaiken Winery was built in 1920 by Italo Calise. In those early days, the winery also made olive oil, distilled beverages, and tartaric acid. Today, the winery has the capacity to make 7 million liters of wine. Fermentation takes place in 12,000-30,000 liter tanks, which are ideal for small batches of superior quality wine.
The Caiquen is a wild goose from Patagonia that flies across The Andes between Argentina and Chile. By embarking on this cross-border flight the Caiquen takes up a major challenge. Just like the Caiquen, Aurelio Montes, founder of the Chilean winery Bodega Montes, made several trips across the Andes until, in 2000 he rediscovered Mendoza as a generous land filled with superb vines and hardworking people. In 2001, he realized Mendoza was the perfect place to make Kaiken Wines, wines that embody everything a great wine ought to be.
