2018 Chile Special Report




This is my second overview of the Chilean wine scene, currently one of the most exciting and fastest improving in the world. Based on three weeks’ on-the-spot research, which took me from Osorno in the south of this long and uniquely thin country to the Elqui Valley in the north, via Malleco, Itata, Curicó, Maule, Cachapoal, Colchagua, Maipo, Leyda, Zapallar and Limarí. I tasted over 1,000 wines from 202 wineries, visiting and talking to hundreds of winemakers.
