Chile Wineries and Vineyards for Sale
As South America’s stunning landscapes become more closely associated with viticulture, Chile has emerged one of the main wine producers and exporters in the world. Today, Chilean wines are seen in international wine stores alongside wines from Italy, Spain, and France. Chile currently stands as the sixth highest producer of wine in the world, and projections show that the country’s wine industry will continue to expand in coming decades. Chile owes its great success with winemaking to its incredible geography: with the Pacific to the west and the Andes to the east, Chile’s vineyards are protected from the elements. As the country’s reputation grows for producing wines of value at a reasonable price point, it’s the ideal time to look for a Chilean vineyard or winery for sale.
Chile’s History of Winemaking
Spanish colonists brought the first wine grapes to Chile in the 16th century. By the mid-19th century, Chilean viticulturists were also growing French varieties such as Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Chile’s wine industry underwent major growth in the late 20th century as the introduction of fermentation tanks and oak barrels vastly improved the quality of Chilean wine. As the wines improved, the number of vineyards and wineries increased dramatically – but the existing operations alone cannot meet the growing demands for Chile’s popular wines. For many interested in Chile’s wineries and vineyards for sale, the Chilean market presents a particularly profitable opportunity.
Best Wine Regions in Chile
- Central Valley: This is Chile’s most internationally-recognized and productive wine region. It is also conveniently located for tourism near Chile’s capital city, Santiago.
- Aconcagua: In this region, the snow melt from the Aconcagua Mountain in the Andes provides a great water source for irrigation. The interior of the region primarily produces red wines, while coastal vineyards are increasingly producing whites.
- Coquimbo: Coquimbo comprises three distinctive wine subregions: Elqui, Limarí, and Choapa. Elqui is the most commercially viable region in northern Chile for wine production, especially Syrah. Limarí’s mineral-rich soil is ideal for Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Syrah. The Choapa Valley produces high-quality Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah wines.
- Southern Chile: This region is known for its mass produced and boxed wine, rather than for producing small batch artisan bottles.
Top Wines in Chile
- Cabernet Sauvignon: This is the most widely grown wine grape in Chile. Cabernet Sauvignon from Chile tends to be less tannic than the same style produced elsewhere.
- Carménère: Similar in style to a light, juicy Merlot, Chile is the only country in the world that grows Carménère grapes. It pairs well with many kinds of foods and is one of the things that sets Chilean wine apart!
- Chardonnay: Chardonnay from Chile tends to be more acidic, with tropical fruit flavors, notes of mineral, and a surprising spiced finish.
- Sauvignon Blanc: Chilean Sauvignon Blanc tends to be affordable and high quality.
- Chilean Bordeaux Blends: Many of Chile’s wineries and vineyards have their own unique Bordeaux blends with a combination of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Malbec, and Chile’s own Carménère grapes.
- Pinot Noir: Chile’s delightful Pinot Noirs are smooth, with low tannin and floral aromas.
- Syrah: While Syrah is newer to the Chilean wine scene, it produces incredibly elegant wines when grown in Chile’s cooler regions.
