About Wines of Chile : In an incredibly short time, Chilean wine has come into its own. Upon the return to democracy in 1990, the Chilean wine industry began a slow but steady recovery. Between 1990 and 1993 an additional of 10,000 hectares of various strains wine grapes were planted in conjunction with large investments in new technologies for production of wine, with a focus on the growth of the international markets.

Chile’s Wine Industry Today

Chile has been highlighted as a global producer of excellent wines and spirits. Flavor, color and centuries of experience, are some of the features that make the Chilean wine one of the more popular of the world. The valleys of Chile receive an ideal combination of soil, sunlight, temperature and humidity, which lead to world class grapes and wine.Chilean wines are among the most organic. Due to the dry summer season, Chilean vineyards resist infestation and natural geographic barriers have protected the country from the arrival of Phylloxera and other diseases. The absence of these threats, allows producers to grow their vineyards with reduced dependence on chemical agents.In 2007, total exports of Chilean wine exceeded $ 1.256 billion, with destinations to five continents, led by the UK, U.S. and Canada.

Foreign investment has significantly influenced the development of the Chilean wine industry, among which are Torres Winery and Chateau Lafitte. Today, Rothschild, Pernod Ricard, Kendall-Jackson, Francisco State, Bruno Prat are among those international vintners with substantial investments in the Chilean wine industry.

All of them attracted by the ideal geo-climatic conditions, the promise of premium quality fruits, healthy crop conditions, and a growing demand for Chilean wines around the world.
