The Aconcagua wine region is one of the five principal wine regions of Chile, consisting of four minor wine districts, one of which is the Aconcagua Valley. It is located 90 km from Chile's capital, Santiago, and is one of the last transversal valleys of the country.
The banks of the Aconcagua River flowing from the Andes Mountain Range into the Pacific Ocean are ideal for growing the best grape varieties. 145 years ago, the valley's Mediterranean climate featuring an extended dry season and concentrated rains in winter inspired Don Macimiano Errazuriz to establish his winery here. With its beautiful scenery from the mountains down to the coast, this region has been the origin of endless renowned Chilean wines.
The Aconcagua Valley has about a hundred kilometers of vineyards and runs between two mountain sides of the Andes mountains. The vines are located close to the river and follow the fresh meltwater from the Andes. The Aconcagua Valley wine region is named after the river that flows from Mount Aconcagua. Due to the geographical location of the wine region, most of the vineyards in the west are located at an altitude of a thousand meters. However, the eastern areas are closer to sea level, at about a hundred meters. This is the case with several wine regions in Chile.
As a result of the higher location, the wine from this region acquires a distinct, characteristic taste. Because the warm, dry land gets warmer in the afternoon, the hot air in the east sucks in cool air from the west. The reverse process then happens later in the evening. The advantage of this air circulation is that it reduces the risk of wine diseases. Without the circulating climate, the vines in the Aconcagua Valley don't stand a chance.
The Aconcaguese wines are strong and full of flavor, with hints of nuts and dried fruit. Flavors of cherry and apricot are present in many wines.
