Cachapoal Valley

Chile

The central region of the Cachapoal Valley of Chile is located by the river Cachapoal, just south of Santiago, the nation’s capital. Known for its red wines including Cabernet Sauvignon and Carmenere, the Cachapoal has been a producer of wines for years. Most of the rainfall in the Cachapoal takes place in winter, leaving the summer months hot and dry, which gives the vines a long growing season. The gravelly and sandy soils in the north of the Cachapoal, near to Rancagua, also produce some interesting grapes, including Shiraz and Viognier.
