Northern Chile

Northern Chile was once the preserve of grapes for eating and distillation into pisco, the national spirit, but times have changed and ushered in splendid results for wine.

The secret, especially for the latter two valleys, has been to harness the cool, moist influence of the mighty Pacific Ocean.

Styles of Wines

The temperate pockets that are now being exploited in Northern Chile not only suit grapes that originate from relatively cool climates, but allow them to achieve an elegance and structure that is not often associated with the wines of this country.  That most delicate of noble grapes, Pinot Noir, is thriving and other French classics are achieving results that their homeland would approve of.

Key Vines

Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Merlot and Syrah.

Climate and Conditions

The climate, for the most part, is unsuitably hot but in areas is soothed by proximity to the Pacific Ocean.  This allows for a long ripening season and the pronounced, elegant flavours that accompany this.  A range of soils provide the variety to suit a number of vines.
