We are sourcing high quality fresh wine juice from the Curico Valley in Chile. The Curico Valley is located 120 miles south of Santiago and is the oldest wine region in the country. The valley features a Mediterranean climate combined with alluvial soil with good drainage creating perfect conditions for great red wines. The origin of this wine-producing valley goes back to 1851, when fine varieties of grapes where brought to the valley from France and Germany.
The Curico Valley is largely affected by the Coastal Range, which blocks the maritime influence and creates a continental effect. The result is a pronounced daytime-night time temperature differential that is very beneficial for flavor and aroma development.
*** The extreme fires in January that devastated many of the old vines in Chile didn't touch the Curico Valley ***
