Maipo Valley

Maipo Valley

(Chile)

Closest wine region to the city of Santiago. Vineyards stretch eastward from Santiago to the Andes and westward to the coast to form three distinct sectors of the Maipo Valley best known for its well-balanced red wines. Alto Maipo reaches into the foothills and produces some of Chile’s leading Cabernets. Central Maipo is one of the country’s oldest and most diverse productive regions, and Coastal Maipo benefits from the cool maritime influence that slides over and between the Coastal Mountains.

Climate and soil
Mediterranean climate. 315 mm (12.4 in) of rain per year. Sandy and gravel to the east, more clay to the west. Maipo is the area with the warmest climate, sometimes reached by the polluted air of Santiago, and contains the smallest wine area of ​​the central region. Thanks to the proximity to the capital, inside it are concentrated many bodegas, which also favored the emergence of large plantations.
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
Maipo, very suitable for Bordeaux varieties, mainly produces red wines and when yields are low it is able to give wines that recall those of Napa Valley. In Maipo Alto the vineyards are located along the slopes of the Andes and are therefore very influenced by the mountain breezes. The intense cold of the morning and the low fertile soils have favored the production of some of the best Chilean reds, such as Almaviva, Aurea Domus, Casa Real, Haras de Pirque and Viñedo Chadwick.
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.
