Chile

For a New World wine-producing nation, Chile has an extensive viticultural history dating back to the 16th century, giving it some very Old World winemaking credentials.

Situated between the Andes and the Pacific Ocean, Chile’s vineyards are situated along an 800 mile stretch that can see weather conditions vary between very hot and dry in the north, to cooler, wetter climates in the south. The diversity of the wine-producing areas makes for truly unique and exciting wines.

The terroir driven wines of Chile gain their influence firstly from Spanish conquistadors in the 1500s followed by French settlers in the 1800s and 1900s, bringing with them their own grape varieties; Carmenère Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc.

Epitomising this European heritage is none more so than Oveja Negra – the ‘black sheep’ – and their cutting edge blends that will add the wow factor to any rack.

From Leyda Valley, Viña Ventolera is one of the pioneers of the area and one of the biggest growers of grapes, although they are highly selective and retain the absolute best grapes for themselves.
