Chile is a leading country in quality and marketing in the wine-growing world. The conditions for growing wine are excellent. It is the only wine country in the world that has remained free of grape lice. The country is located between the Andes Mountains in the east and the Coastal Mountains and Pacific Ocean in the west. It has a healthy and dry climate and enjoys a lot of sun. The drought is not a problem as there is an abundance of meltwater from the Andes to apply irrigation in the vineyards.
Chile is very focused on French viticulture, which means that many typical French grape varieties have been planted such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay. Also, the typically named Chilean grape, Carmenère, which also has its origins in France, thrives here. Most wine regions are located south of the capital Santiago. The largest wine region is Central Valley.
Le Connaisseur sells a wide range of Chilean wines, including wines from Altair, Antiyal, Arboleda, Errazuriz, San Pedro, Montes, Santa Rita, Sena, Matetic, Ventisquero, Los Vascos, Miguel Torres Chile, Montgras and Escudo Rojo.
