Casablanca Valley Wine

Casablanca Valley, Chile’s premier cool-climate coastal region, offers wine lovers an elegant style of wine that’s uniquely indicative of the area. Here, the focus is on varieties that thrive in cooler temperatures including Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, and a rising production of Syrah.

Casablanca is a relatively new region for wine production, as the first vines were planted just over 30 years ago in 1982 by Pablo Morande, the winemaking veteran from Concha y Toro. As a result, the region is just now coming into its own, eclipsing even the great strides it has already made. Recent soil analysis, experimentation of plantings on higher slopes, and a focus on matching the best varieties to the climate have given Casablanca an image of prestige and innovation that shows through in the wines.

In every sense of the term, Casablanca is a classic cool climate, coastal region – the average temperature in the summer is 25C (77F) which is significantly cooler than other parts Read more »

Casablanca Valley on Snooth

  • Vina Leyda Chardonnay 2014

    Snoothrank:

    A touch phenolic in the nose with green apple and peach notes. Nicely spiced palate of green apple, zesty citrus and juicy pear notes. This shows well in the midpalate with a lot of bright acidity and freshness, and turns toasty on the finish with streaks of oak and burnt lemon peel. Read More

  • Albamar Sauvignon Blanc 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Classic lemon aromas waft from the glass with some green apple and grass notes. This has some flab in the mouth but despite being chunky on entry there is some acidic bit to follow with notes of lemon, pink grapefruit and even a touch of cream towards the finish. Read More

  • Leyda Pinot Noir 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Smoke and char on the nose muting the cherry fruit or at least hiding it a bit. The palate is full of ripe cherry and cooked cranberry fruit, with streaks of tar and some earth as well. It's medium bodied but the finish has a little extra punch as it lingers with some tart fruit and earth, with some zestiness as well. Read More

  • Vina Leyda Sauvignon Blanc Single Vineyard Garuma 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Floral honeysuckle and peach notes opening here with lemon and a bit of grassiness. Puckering lemon acidity in the mouth which is kind of single noted or at least very profoundly direct on that note, yet there is still some peach and apricot around the edges of this refreshing wine.89 pts Read More

  • Veramonte Ritual Sauvignon Blanc 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Binny's 8/2015. Mary loves it. Which makes me happy cause it's inexpensive (aka CHEAP). Winding down our white wine season here in MI in mid Sept. Not to mean we are done drinking white's. It is just that red wines by in large make you feel warmer. Autumn is close at hand, followed by, yup, winter. BOOOOO! The season for red wine. Thank you, Lord. Read More

  • Ah, another weekend has arrived.  We are having beautiful weather out here ... Noir from Chile (the same Casablanca Valley we visited last year in our tour of South America), a Bonarda from Argentina, and finally a Malbec Grand Reserva from Argentina.  They didn't have the regular Malbec from Argentina, but we probably would not have preferred ...
