About Maule Valley

The Maule Valley Wine Region is easily one of Chile’s largest wine producing areas and possesses some of the country’s oldest vines. While the region’s past reputation was defined by its production of table wine, this zone of The Central Valley is currently undergoing a winemaking renaissance. As a means to increase quality, winemakers are becoming more heedful of improved vinification and viticultural techniques, creating wines from lower yields, healthier soils and superlative grapes. The bulk of the grapes grown in the region are red—predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Carmenère—creating full-bodied wines with concentrated dark berry flavors and an herbal tinge. And while Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc are also produced in Maule Valley, it is the reds that are held in the highest regard according to our Maule Valley Wine Reviews.
