Chile Wine Country

 

You may be a wine enthusiast who loves touring wineries across the US and maybe even the world, but what do you know about Chile Wine Country?

In the May Issue of Destinations Travel Magazine we take our readers to the heart of Chile’s wine region in Colchagua.

This ever-growing valley is the home to several young and prominent wineries that boast high quality varietals sure to satisfy the palates of both the most sophisticated oenophiles, and casual wine adventurers alike. Each winery in Colchagua Valley has its own history and individual charm. Many of the wineries carry a long family tradition in winemaking, combined with the latest technologies, for the production of their fine wines. Some vines are more than 100 years old.
