This region in Chile’s Central Valley produces the country’s best red wines.
Drive two hours south of Santiago and you’ll hit what is arguably the most important wine region in Chile. Bookended by the Andes mountains in the east and the Coastal Range in the west, the area’s micro-climates and granite soils are ideal for growing grapes such as Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Syrah. Some of the top wineries in Colchagua include Casa Lapostolle, Clos Santa Ana, Neyen, and Laura Hartwig.
