Maule valley wines

Maule Valley is one of the first Chilean territories where vine cultivation is carried out. Chile is a young country and, starting with European colonization, the various European winemaking techniques have been disseminated in its main districts. The Maule Valley has immediately been designated as the territory of choice for the production of wine that over time, from a mass production, has become an area vitivinicola of excellence recognized worldwide. The valley is located in the southern part of the Central Valley and is wide and surrounded by soft hills on whose slopes from the draining soils grow very well the vineyards. The Maule river flows through the valley, giving rise to gravelly and clayey alluvial soils and has a moderate influence on the climate of the area with strong Mediterranean characteristics. The whole valley is mainly characterized by volcanic soils, although there are no alluvial areas in red gravel and granite rocks. The region, 250 kilometers away from the capital Santiago de Chile, is very vast and allows a differentiation in different microclimates very suitable for wines red and white. Well known for its Cabernet Sauvignon and aromatic wines, wines of different qualities are produced in the whole area with different techniques, starting from the traditional ones up to the most innovative ones. Modern vineyards for the production of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Carménère, characterized by brilliant acidity and juicy fruity notes, alternate with old rows and dry crops able to give life to wines faithful to the tradition and highly balanced types Carignano, Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec .
