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 »

  • Apaltagua Chardonnay Unoaked Reserva Casablanca Valley Chile 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Almost gingery on the nose with real richness of ripe fruit all spicy apple, poached pear and grilled pineapple laced. This smells terrific and has some of the character of oaked Chardonnay coming from some of the creamy, leesy notes. Rich in the mouth, polished and round with bright, well integrated acidity lending the flavors, which verge on o... Read More

  • Veramonte Sauvignon Blanc 2013

    Snoothrank:

    For fans of Sauvignon Blanc, this is a competent all-arounder. Good acidity, with some hints of fruit and minerals. For me, it had a relatively dry, light, and crisp finish. It's hard to beat for what you spend. Read More

  • Root 1 Sauvignon Blanc 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Sweet peach, lemon verbena and asparagus greet the nose. Made in a fairly tart and lean style, this kicks off with a bright jab of acid that is quickly covered by the core of moderately rich and round fruit. Not particularly complex, this reveals subtle green citrus, grapefruit, and under-ripe melon flavors on the palate that lead to a pithy, r... Read More

  • Concha Y Toro Chardonnay Casillero del Diablo 2008

    Snoothrank:

    This Chardonnay was tasted at six years old and was amazingly young tasting. It's fruit is doing well and has a lemon, toast and honey character. Nice wine for the money. My rating-- 88. Read More

  • Montsecano Refugio Casablanca Valley Pinot Noir 2012

    Snoothrank:

    There was something funky going on when I opened this. Slightly fizzy and a strange aftertaste I can't really describe. Possibly a second fermentation? I tried it again the night after and the fizz and strange aftertaste were gone and it tasted a little better. However it was far from what I remember tasting back in Santiago. Read More
