Overview

Chile is a country of amazingly diverse landscapes, with over 4,000 miles of South Pacific coastline on one side and the Andes on the other. Cool maritime winds drift across the Pacific and settle into the winegrowing regions, cooling the grapes and consequently slowing down the ripening process. The Andes protect the vineyards from torrential storms and provide limitless water from the many streams that flow from the mountains. Chile has taken advantage of its near-perfect weather to create approachable wines with depth and character, reflecting many of its sub-regions. In addition to the more famous varietals such a Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Chardonnay, Chile is also home to Carmenère; a charming, well-structured grape once mistaken for Merlot through the country's vineyards.
