With a geography that begins at the foot of the Andes Mountains and ends in the Pacific Ocean, the Colchagua Valley is located across Chile creating a unique geographic and climatic diversity. At present it is considered one of the most outstanding wine-growing areas in Chile.
BUT COLCHAGUA KEEPS LOOKING FOR NEW TERROIR
Towards the coast, for example, there is Paredones, from where some fresh Sauvignon Blanc come or already in mountain areas, such as Sierras de Bellavista at 1,100 meters of altitude and a remarkable experiment with Riesling.
About 220 km from Santiago de Chile is the Curicó Valley.
In this area, the vineyards extend from the foothills of the Andes, passing through the Central Valley until reaching the Coastal Mountain Range. This makes it possible to have vineyards with diverse and privileged soils and climates, thus obtaining a greater variety of red and white vines.
The Mediterranean climate, with hot days with adequate solar radiation and cold nights, provides the necessary temperature range to obtain quality grapes.
ABOUT THE SOILS
In the Curicó Valley there is a wide diversity of soils of volcanic and alluvial origins, with clay textures, which also allows choosing the most appropriate soil condition for each variety and thereby expressing its maximum potential.
