The Colchagua Valley could easily be a wine producing country of its own. They have very privileged topography, as they have two extensions, which make them different from any other valley in the world. One extension opens out to the Pacific Ocean and the other opens out to the Andes Mountain Range. The climate here is just amazing.
Along with the Colchagua Valley, this valley is the counterpart of what makes the ‚ÄúRapel Region‚ÄĚ. Rapel accounts for almost 32.000 Hectares of Chile‚Äôs plantations, and they mainly produce 80% red wines.
The Maipo Valley is divided into three areas, Maipo Alto, Maipo Valley, and Maipo Costa. The Maipo is where fine wine production begins for Chile, when Mr. Silvestre Ochagav√≠a planted the first French varieties in the mid-19th century.
This tour consists of getting the best of both of our top cool climate valleys. These two valleys are currently known for being heavy competitors of New Zealand‚Äôs Marlborough Valley, as they are making great Sauvignon Blanc. If you‚Äôre a fan of NZ‚Äôs Sauv Blanc, then this Tour is Ideal for you.
