Holidays to Casablanca Valley, Chile
Casablanca Valley is the ideal stopping off point on your journey between cosmopolitan Santiago and the port city of Valparaíso. After a whirlwind few days in Santiago, ambling around the beautiful wineries and sampling their wares is the perfect wind-down from frantic city life.
White wine quaffers may already know that Casablanca Valley is the destination for chardonnay and sauvignon blanc. If red wine is your preference, there’s a little Syrah and pinot noir here too, but frankly, Casablanca Valley’s claim to fame is really those crisp whites. Sparkling wine is produced in the area too – try the Viñamar winery for a selection of the region’s finest bubblies.
Although Casablanca Valley is relatively new to wine production (only in the game since the 1980s, which makes it a mere baby) it’s Chile’s fastest growing wine region. Its youth explains the high volume of modern cellars that are equipped with the latest winemaking technology that are sure to impress New World wine buffs in particular.
Excellent wine is perfectly complemented by excellent food in the Casablanca Valley. Many of the wineries have in-house restaurants which is rather convenient when you just can’t bear to leave that sweeping view over the vineyards and the Andes in the distance (not to mention that chilled glass of sublime vino in your hand). Menus of delicious local meats come with professional advice on wine pairings, so you’ll return home ready to dazzle friends and family with your newfound expertise.
