Chile has a long-standing tradition of wine production. Since the days when there was a strong influence of Spanish customs, Chilean production has become more well-established, with the consequences that it has reached its current standing as a synonym of the best New World wines.
Chile's best wines are basically produced in the valleys found in the centre of the country. These are the valleys of Casablanca, Maipo, Maule, Curicó, Rapel and Colchagua, where there are improved varieties of French grapes, both as regards blends and maturation techniques.
Furthermore, Chile claims to be the only place in the world where the Carménère grape can be found. This grape was considered extinct until 1990, when it was rediscovered. Among the red wines, Chile offers varietal wines like Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Carménère, with Cabernet Franc, Syrah, Malbec and Pinot Noir grapes. As regards white wines, the names of its varietals are Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon, and as for grapes, the most widely used are the Colombard and the Chardonnay.
