Central Valley

Central Valley

The Central Valley occupies the middle latitudes of Chile and is at the very heart of its wine industry.

Stretching for over a hundred miles south from Santiago, sandwiched between the Andes and the Pacific Ocean, it is divided into the four sub-regions of the Maipo, Rapel, Curicó and Maule Valleys.

Between them, these four valleys produce most of Chile's fine wine and, owing to low domestic consumption, about three-quarters of this finds its way onto the export market.

Styles of Wine

For nigh on 20 years Chile, and especially the Central Valley, has provided good everyday wine at a reasonable price and the UK and USA have welcomed it with open arms and tingling tastebuds. This remains the case to this day, but in recent years the Maipo and Rapel Valleys in particular have taken a step up in quality. The red wines are highly regarded, though the whites are often excellent too.

Key Vines

Old World favourites abound, especially those from Bordeaux, for Chile as a nation was strongly influenced by France in the nineteenth century.  Cabernet Sauvignon is the most successful and popular vine and is joined by Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Merlot and Semillon. Torrontés, more often associated with Argentina, also has a presence and so does Zinfandel. País is a locally popular grape of no great merit that remains widespread in the Maule Valley.

Carmenère is a nationally and regionally important vine.  Once thought to be Merlot, it was recently revealed as a quite distinct variety of grape. It is also a native of Bordeaux, but unlike Merlot has become virtually extinct in its homeland. Happily, it is thriving in its adopted Chile.

Climate and Conditions

Wedged between the Andes and the Pacific Ocean, both of these immense natural features are vital to the vines of the Central Valley. Snowmelt from the former is diverted for irrigation and moist, cool winds from the latter help nurture the grapes. Soil conditions vary from valley to valley, and even within them.
