Casablanca Valley and Maipo Valley Wine Tours

CASABLANCA VALLEY WINE TOURS

Casablanca Valley is just an hour from Santiago in the Valparaiso region and sits between the coastal mountains and the Pacific Ocean in Chile’s central area. Like many of the wine regions in Chile there are several boutique wineries in Casablanca that use traditional and state of the art winemaking techniques. This particular region is well known for it’s white wines including crisp Chardonnays and Sauvignon Blancs, but also for some smooth reds such as Pinot Noir, Merlot and Syrah.

MAIPO VALLEY WINE TOURS

Maipo Valley is the closest Chilean wine region to Santiago, the capital city of Chile. The valley is mostly dedicated to producing Cabernet Sauvignon or Cabernet blends. It is a historic wine-producing region and the birthplace of the Chilean wine industry, with vines growing there for the past 150 years.

The Maipo Valley consists of 3 sub-regions: Alto Maipo, Central Maipo, and Pacific Maipo.

The Alto Maipo sub-region is located in the foothills of the Andes and is particularly good for viticulture because they produce a great variation in temperature between day and night. This is because the sun must first rise above the Argentinean side of the Andes before reaching the western Chilean slopes, creating cold mornings, and then sets on the western side, leading to hot, sunny afternoons. The climate, combined with the poor, porous and rocky soil, puts the vines under stress which in turn produces a characteristically bold, elegant Cabernet Sauvignon.

Central Maipo is one of the oldest winemaking areas in Chile and was the first part of the Maipo Valley to be settled. Cabernet Sauvignon dominates production, but the region has also started producing Carmenere wines. Central Maipo is the warmest and driest of the three Maipo Valley sub-regions.

Pacific Maipo is the youngest wine-producing area in the Maipo Valley and there are relatively few vineyards found in the vicinity of the Maipo River. Because of the region’s coastal influence, Pacific Maipo is also a popular place for experimentation with the country’s white varieties, most notably Sauvignon Blanc.
