Thanks to its geography and history, Chile offers wine lovers some of the most diverse and exciting wine choices of any country in the world. Here’s why. Chile is the narrowest country in the world, averaging just 110 miles wide. It’s also the second longest (Brazil beats Chile by just 57 miles). At 2,600 miles, Chile is as long as the U.S. is wide, ranging from 17 degrees south to 56 degrees south. That translates to the distance between the Caribbean island of Antigua and Quebec in the Northern Hemisphere. In terms of width, the country is wedged between the Pacific Ocean to the west and the Andes mountains to the east, with a long strip of coastal mountains separating the two.

So, not only do most viticultural areas get a “two-fer” of extra-strength maritime and alpine influences, but micro-terroirs are abundant, and often cheek-by-jowl. Chile’s rich vinous history also factors into the array of choices. The first vines were planted in 1544, making Chile one of the oldest wine cultures in the New World.
