Red Wine, Chile

With the Andes mountains to its east (on its border with Argentina) and the Pacific Ocean to its west, Chile has a unique geography and climate that make it suitable for a range of both red and white wine styles. The country enjoys cooling influences from both the ocean and the mountains, coupled with plenty of sunshine. Generally, Chilean vineyards have a Mediterranean climate, with a sunny, dry growing season and little risk of fungal diseases. Winery operations of all sizes throughout the country widely practise sustainable and organic grapegrowing and winemaking. Black grape varieties account for most of the plantings in Chile, with Cabernet Sauvignon the most widely planted. Styles can range from simple and fruity to premium full-bodied examples. Other red wine varieties include Merlot, Carmenère, Syrah, and Pinot Noir. Among the white varieties, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay are the most dominant.
