Chile–Wine history and discovery
Wine was brought into Chile first by Spanish Conquistadors in the mid 1500s and the country rapidly grew to fulfill international wine demand. The country's wine production went into disarray until after Chilean Independence. Since then, Chile has begun to re-root itself making a few special discoveries including finding a nearly extinct grape (Carménère) and realizing the potential for elegant, terroir-driven red Bordeaux blends. Chile has wide climatic diversity from north to south but also east to west where cool coastal areas are ideal for wines like Chardonnay and Pinot Noir and inland Andes areas are better for age-worthy red wines like Syrah.
