Casablanca Valley

Casablanca Valley

(Chile)

Located 75 km (47 mi) northwest of Santiago, the Casablanca Valley was first planted to vine in the mid-1980s. It quickly turned a page in Chile’s winemaking history. Chile’s first cool-climate coastal region soon turned out crisp, fresh wines that caught the world’s attention, and Chile’s search for new terroirs was on.

Cool Mediterranean climate with pronounced maritime influence. 540 mm (21.2 in) of rain per year.

Information about Casablanca Valley

Region
Casablanca Valley
Country
Chile
Climate and soil
Casablanca is the youngest Chilean wine district. The soft hills of the area do not exceed 400 meters above sea level and the vineyards extend mainly in the valleys or on the lower slopes. The climate is warm and temperate with fresh winds from the sea that favor a long maturation of the white vines of the area, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Riesling. Great investments have been made to improve the problematic situation of low-lying land, which is mainly sandy and with too fast drainage. Casablanca has an average yield per hectare lower than the rest of the country.
History
The Spanish conquerors were the first to cultivate the vineyard in South America and this was perhaps their only good deed. Probably the first vineyards were planted to satisfy their thirst, first in Chile in 1548 and then in Argentina in 1551. Already in the 1500s, Francisco Carabantes planted vineyards near the town of Concepción, on the coast of the central part of the country. It was a rather mediocre quality vine, País, which the conquistadors had brought with them from Spain. Probably, it is the same grape that in Argentina is called Criolla and, in California, Mission. Between 1600 and 1700, the development of viticulture was rapid, taking on great proportions. After the liberation from Spain, in 1850, cuttings were imported from Bordeaux, and thanks to the fact that this happened before phylloxera infects the European vineyards, Chile is today one of the few countries in the world that were not affected by the aphid. Moreover, protected by the eastern Andes, from the hot and sandy desert to the north, the Antarctica to the south and the Pacific Ocean to the west, Chile does not even run the risk of being infected with phylloxera in the future. The vines, infested on a free foot, are more long-lived than those grafted on American feet.
Typical products
The valley produces excellent Sauvignon Blanc wines, but the most widespread variety is the chardonnay, which gives a wine not particularly interesting but in great demand.
Typical dishes
If the potato is the undisputed queen, do not joke the other products of the earth such as cassava, of which we eat the tuber, and of course the tomatoes. Although at the base of the European diet, the xitomatl - this is the name with which the Aztecs called the red fruit - is in fact native of these lands and was brought to the Old Continent only in the mid-sixteenth century by the Spanish leader Hernán Cortés. Every people who came from these lands (according to some oriental scholars, the Chinese came to South America a thousand years before Columbus) brought his dishes, which remained alive in the tradition here, contrary to what has often happened in the countries of origin. . It is therefore not surprising that every visitor finds a piece of his culture in South America.
