At the end of the 19th century, coming from the north of Italy, the first members of the Casanova family arrived to Chile, with the purpose of continuing the noble tradition of producing wines of excellence. Eliseo Casanova purchased in 1898 the estates BATUKO and VALLE HERMOSO in Itata, where his dream began.

Today Hugo Casanova Wines has a cellar with a storage capacity of 2 million litres and an annual production of about 1.3 million litres of wine.
