Winemaking in Chile

Reclaiming the Roots of Winemaking in Chile

The Maule Valley


With crisp Sauvignon Blancs and cool-climate Pinot Noirs from the Casablanca Valley as its poster children, Chile is steadily gaining traction in the international wine arena. The Central Valley sees thousands of thirsty visitors each day who come to discover the secrets of Winemaking in Chile.
For those willing to venture a little further afield, it’s not too late to witness a fledgling movement just taking wing.  Maule is a largely undeveloped agricultural region just south of Colchagua. Independent winemakers are turning to the stripped-down practices dating back more than a hundred years for inspiration. This search for simplicity has led to a rediscovery of traditional methods and forgotten grapes, yielding astoundingly fresh and modern results.

There are trails for all ability levels, but it caters particularly well to the advanced rider with plenty of steep slopes. In-bounds there are only 500 hectares of terrain, but experts also ski Portillo for the abundance of side-country areas that can be traversed or hiked to. As a result of the traversing and flat spots around the hotel, skiing tends to be more popular than snowboarding.
