Weather and Geology

Understanding Chile means understanding the weather, and how the layout of the country—narrow and framed by mountain ranges—affects the appellations. Marcelo explains how each appellation should be thought of not as a singular region, but as a range of terroirs that stretches from the cool coast to the dry, warm slopes of the Andes. We also discuss the traits the set apart De Martino's Sauvignon Blanc from other cool climate examples of this variety.

  • I had the pleasure of visiting De Martino when in Chile last December. It was a fantastic experience both in terms of the winery's hospitality and in terms of the phenomenal wines they produce. What is even more remarkable is that De Martino produces such excellent wines without charging exorbitant prices.
