The last 20 years Chile has explored other areas outside of the traditional Maipo valley and have moved to cooler micro-climates like hillside and cool-valley vineyards closer to the coast like Casablanca and Colchagua.

This led to new productions other than the traditional Cabernet Sauvignon, like Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Riesling and extraordinary blends like the Chardonnoir (Bodegas RE).

The arrival of Chile in the established old world wine producers 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.
