The Colchagua valley is located approximately 180 km south of Santiago and is one of Chile’s best known wine areas! The area has won various awards for their full bodied Cabernet Sauvignons, Malbecs, Merlots, Syrahs & Carménères. Despite its calm rural oasis atmosphere, the area has a rich culture and history.
The valley stretches from the foot of the Andes Mountains to the Pacific Ocean, although the majority of the wineries are concentrated in the center of the valley. Due to its geographical location, the valley has a number of different micro-climates and soil types.

In the last 20 years Chile has explored areas outside of the traditional Maipo Valley and has moved vineyards to cooler micro-climates like hillside and cool-valley vineyards closer to the coast like Casablanca and Colchagua. This led to new productions outside of the traditional Cabernet Sauvignon – like Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Riesling and extraordinary blends like the Chardonnoir (Bodegas RE).
The arrival of Chilean wines in the established old world wine production caused a proper “terremoto”: Chile showed the world its wines can compete with the Super Tuscans and traditional Bordeaux wines at much more accessible prices.
When the old world came to Chile, the traditional winemakers from Italy and France immediately recognised Chile’s potential for its steady climate, quality of soil and unspoilt natural conditions. Due to its geography Chile is much like an island which very much protects its flora & fauna. Therefore we can often find grape varieties back in Chile, which were extinct in Europe due to the Phylloxera plague.
By the end of the 19th century the Phylloxera plague pretty much destroyed all of Europe’s wine grapes, most notably in France. An example of a grape variety that has been found back in Chile is the Carmenère grape in the Aquitania winery in Santiago.
In the 90s Chileans discovered the potential in the wine industry which led to an enthusiastic new generation of winemakers and viticulturists. Along with the more traditional buildings marked by its European influence of the wine experts from the Old world, a whole new wave of modern architecture has embarked upon the Chilean wine houses, with amazing creations like Viña Vik or Casa Lapostolle wineries.
Chile’s fast progress using new technologies applied to old winemaking traditions has made it possible to move around mass market labels and to create high level quality wines – unique to Chile.
Finesse, elegance, diversity, complexity & authenticity are the signature to Chile’s world class premium wines!
