A pioneering adventure Grapevines were planted in the north of Chile in the 16th century, in the wake of Spanish conquistadors.Production expanded rapidly and the country was soon exporting to Peru, challenging imported wines from Spain. The Echenique family, of Basque origin, planted vineyards in the Peralillo area of the Colchagua province around 1750 and in the 19th century, the same family was part of the rapid expansion that took place in Chilean wines, at the initiative of a handful of pioneers who were inspired by the French model. The first French grapes were planted in the Cañeten Valley of Colchagua in 1850 but when phylloxera ravaged Europe’s vineyards, Chile’s production increased dramatically. Vineyards went from 9,000 hectares in 1870 to 40,000 hectares in 1900. The first exports of wines to Europe took place in 1877.

  • Los Vascos Cabernet Sauvignon Wooden Salmanazar Colchagua Valley 2011

    Snoothrank:

    This simple wine is pale to medium ruby. On the nose, there are blackberries, minerality, earthiness, and a touch of heat from the alcohol. This is a youthful, lighter-style Cabernet Sauvignon.  On the palate, there are bright flavors of black cherries, raspberries, and a medium length finish. Read More
