Chilean wines tend to be fruit-forward and flavor-packed.
About Chilean Wine
Chile is in the top ten in terms of largest wine-producing countries and has a vinous history dating to the 16th century, one of the oldest of the so-called New World wine regions. Chile's climate ranges from warm and desert-like in the north, to very cool far to the south in Patagonia. Cabernet Sauvignon is Chile's most widely planted grape variety, and this grape does particularly well in the well-known Maipo Valley area just south of the capital city of Santiago. Chile has established a reputation for providing good quality wine and value price points.
