Chile

As the fifth largest exporter and the seventh largest producer of wine in the world, Chile has often suffered from a reputation for producing quantity over quality. However a small number of premium producers are now exploiting the unique terroirs to make world class wines that can compete with the best from Bordeaux and beyond.

At ‘The Berlin Tasting’ of 2004 organised by Steven Spurrier that proved to be South America’s equivalent of ‘The Judgement of Paris’, a Chilean wine – 2000 Viñedo Chadwick – took first place in a blind tasting of the world’s greatest Cabernet blends from France and Italy. Ten years and 22 blind tastings later – and with consistent results – it was clear that Chilean wines had achieved world class quality.
