Chile has some of the oldest vines in the world and a long and varied history. Part of Chile’s uniqueness comes from its remote location. Cut-off from the rest of the world by the Andes to the East and the Atacama desert to the North, Chile has not suffered from the pest problems of the rest of the world.
Chilean vegan wines represent excellent value for money and its Central Valley produces some good wines at great prices. Chile is well known for its Sauvignon Blancs, Cabernet Sauvignons, Chardonnays, Malbec and Merlot. But its unique wine is the Carménère, which is peppery in style and really great with food.
