Collection: Chile Red Wine

The oldest wine-producing nation in South America is Chile. Chile began to sow Spanish vines in the middle of the 16th century. Nonetheless, the origins of Chile's contemporary wine industry may be traced back to French colonists who introduced grape varieties that now predominate in the nation: Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenere, Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc, and Chardonnay. The sunny days and somewhat mild nights in Chile's wine-growing regions are great for enhancing the scents of the grapes. Nearly all Chilean vineyards require artificial irrigation due to the country's infrequent rainfall. However, because of the dry climate, fungal infections are uncommon and typically do not require chemical treatment. Chilean wines are favoured for their rich fruitiness, generally gentle tannins, and mild acidity.
