South America >
Chile stretches like a long sliver along the western coast of South America yielding many different climactic zones within the
country. Administratively the country is divided into 15 regions, but only in the central ones has viticulture been successful.
The valleys draining westward from the Andes Mountains provide fertile ground for grapegrowing.
Chaptalization is illegal, limiting how far south grapes can be grown
but phylloxera has never made its way to the country.
