Andes foothills provide
perfect growing conditions
for many Chilean vineyards,
With a hot,
dry desert hugging its northern border, and the freezing Antartic
just off the southern tip, the heart of 2,700 mile-long Chile
is virtually bug free, and an isolated haven for ideal wine growing.
natural advantages have always existed within Chile, the economic
and political ones did not until the late 1980's - when the wine
industry was allowed to fully bloom.
