The Curicó Valley
With a tradition in winemaking dating back to the 19th century, the Curicó valley is, to this day, one of the largest, diverse, and most highly regarded winemaking regions in Chile. The region presents a wide variety of soils – volcanic and alluvial in origin –, with loam a clay textures that grant it various contents and humidity retention levels, which also allows to select the most adequate soil condition for each grape strain, and thus allow it to fully express its potential. The Mediterranean Climate – with its hot days, adequate sun exposure, and cool nights, provides the temperature variation needed to obtain high quality grapes.
