|Wine Regions Map|
Chile surprised the wine industry by going from producing mediocre wines in the 1940's/1990's, to putting out an excellent product that stands up well to all other New World wines as well as to French wines and wines from other more established wine makers, in just the last ten years or so.
Chile's Central Valley, where most of its wine is produced, is made up of various sub-regions, such as: the Maipo, Rapel, Cachapoal, Mataquito and Maule Valleys.
