The waters in the extreme south of Chile have held a secret in their depths for millions of years. The cold Humboldt Current flows thousands of miles northward and chills the entire coast of the southern Pacific Ocean. This continuous influence along with the extraordinary climatic conditions in this area result in nicely balanced and elegant white wines with fresh acidity.
Located in the Coquimbo Region, this valley is the gateway to Chile’s northernmost wine regions. Following the course of the Limarí River, this is one of the Chilean valleys influenced by the cold south Pacific Ocean. Cool temperatures, very low rainfall, and soils that are unusually rich in minerals combine to create conditions that only occur in the terroirs in the world.
Particularly influenced by the southern Pacific Ocean’s cold Humboldt Current, this valley sits among the low-lying coastal mountains that allow the morning fog to enter from the sea. This cool air moderates the temperatures and creates a microclimate that gives rise to spectacular and fresh white wines of superior quality.
