Chile is a virtual grape growing paradise. The Andes mountains to the East, the Pacific to the West, a desert to the North, and Antarctica to the south makes the ideal grape growing climate. This climate is so ideal that a large number of growers forego traditional pesticides and are organic! The combination of the warmth of the sun, plus the cool breezes blowing off the ocean makes wines that are both very ripe and fruity and with great acidity! Other wine regions strive to achieve this.
- We can make a wine with the same characteristics, the same alcohol and sugar content, as one from central Chile.
- We are surrounded by volcanoes and mountains. All that volcanic earth adds lots of minerals to the wine
- Global warming is disrupting harvests in warmer climates than Patagonia — such as neighboring Argentina, Brazil and elsewhere in Chile.
