The Wine Regions Travel Guide
The several valleys that make up the wine growing regions in Chile are all located around Santiago in the middle of the country. Benefiting from a Mediterranean climate, wine making has been around since the Spanish brought over the first vines in the 16th century. The most famous valley is Maipo located just outside Santiago where many of Chile’s oldest and biggest wineries, such as concha y toro, are based. The Colchagua valley, located south of Santiago, has a great climate for red grape varieties whilst the Casablanca valley is better known for its white wines.
Many of Chile's best wineries are easily accessible from Santiago, but for those with more of an interest we recommend staying on one of the vineyards to get the full experience!
