About Central Vallies
Under the term of "Valle Central", this important vineyard splits into four valleys, from the north to the south: Maipo, Recall, Curicó and Maule.
Maipo is the hottest valley and is perfectly suited for Bordeaux-style reds. During the 1990s, merlot, Cabernet-sauvignon and carmenère made some nice expressions, in a frank style that was sometimes very smart.
The the Rappel region consists of the Cachapoal, Rancagua, Colchagua, Apalta and Requinoa valleys, which are on variegated terroirs. They principally produce red wines.
The Curicó and Maule regions, which traditionally produced ordinary wine from the traditional país grape variety, are progressively converting towards the making of quality wines.
