Chile’s natural boundaries are clearly dened. At the north end is the Atacama Desert, the south end is dened by the Patagonian glaciers, the eastern border is marked by the great Andes Mountain Range, and to the west is the Pacic Ocean. Together these distinct barriers help to maintain healthy growing conditions, protecting vineyards from pests and disease. Stretching nearly 250 miles from north to south, Valle Central of Chile is one of the largest wine regions in South America. In this region, vines thrive in uninterrupted sunshine. As night falls, cold air descends from the snow-covered peaks of the Andes. This temperature swing provides the environment wine grapes need to develop fresh fruit characteristics and crisp acidity. Chilean vineyards benet from the abundant water for irrigation which ows from the eternal ice caps of the Andes. Chile’s unique geography and climate make for an ideal winegrowing region.
