Wine production in Chile has a long-standing tradition. Since the early days when there was a strong influence of Spanish customs, Chilean production has consolidated itself, reaching its current standing as an international byword for the best New World wines.
The best wines of Chile are mainly produced in the valleys in the center of the country. These are the valleys of Casablanca, Maipo, Maule, Curicó, Rapel and Colchagua, where there are varieties of French grapes, but with improvements, both as regards blends and maturation techniques.
Chile claims to be the only place in the world where the Carménère grape variety is found. It was considered extinct until 1990, when it was rediscovered. Among the red wines, Chile offers varietal wines like Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Carménère, with Cabernet Franc, Syrah, Malbec and Pinot Noir grapes. As regards white wines, the names of its varietals are Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon, and as for grapes, the most widely used are the Colombard and the Chardonnay.
