VALLEYS OF CHILE AND THEIR NATURAL BARRIERS

The particular combination of a temperate Mediterranean climate with the country's specific geographical characteristics makes Chile an ideal place for environmentally friendly vine-growing, enabling a wide variety of wine styles to be obtained.

These characteristics, which we find throughout the whole length of Chile, are what protect the Chilean vineyards from all kinds of diseases and give rise to an amazingly wide range of soil types. So we have the Atacama Desert in the north, Antarctica in the south, the Andes Mountains to the east, and, finally, the Pacific Ocean to the west.

The different wine-producing valleys are to be found between these four natural barriers, in the country's central zone. They extend along the length of the country for 2,300 km., with a total of 117 thousand hectares planted with wine-producing vines.
