WINE FROM CHILE
Chile is one of the most important wine-producing countries in South America. It is known as the paradise of wine production, due mainly to its globally unique geographic barriers, , which makes Chile an exceptional region unlike any other place in the world, as it is a country that extends along the ocean coastline.
Besides, its location, between a desert (on the North) and the glaciers (on the South) has favored the creation of some very special wines. The history of Chilean wine dates back to the XVI century, when the Spanish conquerors introduced wine grapes into the New World.
The Curicó Valley is arguably the most important region with regards to paving the way for the rest of Chile’s expansion into growing wine. The wines from this region are exported all over the world, including England, Canada, United States, Germany, Sweden, France, Denmark, Belgium, Netherlands, Ireland, Spain, Japan, Mexico and Brazil. The quality of its wines, its local cuisine, history, costumes and culture make the Curico Valley an unique place to visit, especially for wine lovers.
