Chile

The Old World envies Chile for its low costs, lack of vine pests and diseases and its dependably dry, warm summers. Much of the New World envies its plentiful and regular supply of water from the melted snow of the Andes. During Chile’s golden age at the end of the 19th century, the wine industry was owned by just 10 Chilean families; many of whom are still prominent players in today’s market. Chilean wines are consumed with great popularity across the world – top quality is available across the price range. Cabernet Sauvignon accounts for more than a third of all vines planted and is Chile’s most important red variety. Carmenere, Chile’s signature variety, also has a strong presence alongside Merlot. Chile has a reputation for good-value, crisp Sauvignon Blanc from Casablanca whilst other aromatic varieties, such as Viognier and Riesling have also performed well.
