Named after the Chilean penguins, PengWine is a producer of unique wine from Chile. The founders wanted the company to have a name that was as unique and adventurous as the endeavor of making the wine itself, therefore they thought of the resilient Chilean penguins that make their home along the coast… and with that, PengWine was born.
To toast and honor these land and sea-loving birds, each of the varietals are named after a different penguin native to South America. Today, Pengwine is enjoyed by people from all over the world.
PengWine began with two friends from 2 different hemispheres, Chris Milliken from the U.S, and Max Eyzaguirre, from Chile. Their adventure started in 2004, when they hatched the idea and bottled their first vintage of 2003 PengWine. Since then, both men have meticulously chosen the best grapes from their boutique vineyard in Chile, to create unique wines that you can enjoy without ever leaving your hometown.
GALA 2013 CABERNET FRANC/MALBEC
The Galapagos Penguin is an exceptional penguin (which does not make it’s home in Chile) that is the only penguin to inhabit one of the most dynamic eco-systems in the world. Our very complimentary wines are a tribute to this resilient bird. Our GALA – red and our PAGOS – white are the perfect wine to start an evening or compliment food.

HUMBOLDT 2009 CABERNET SAUVIGNON/CABERNET FRANC
he classiest of the penguin species is the Humboldt with their elegant demeanor and gait. Like the bird, our PengWine Humboldt is a sophisticated and complex wine with a gorgeous purple hue and layer upon layer of rich aromas and flavours. To create this complex and robust varietal we focused on the most Noble of Grapes. The Cabernet Sauvignon and the Cabernet Franc complement each other like great brothers. A mouth full of expression, this wine has a strong backbone which can be served up today or cellared for up to 10 years!
