Region

Curico Valley in Chile’s Central Valley.

Climate

Curico is situated well inland in the warmest pocket of the Valle Central. Cool air descends nightly from the Andes Mountains to moderate the sometimes incredibly hot days.

Soil

The soil in Curico is generally more uniform in profile and depth. Some loam, but clay predominates.

Aspect

We spent a tremendous amount of time circling back through Curico and its prime subregion of Lontue, seeking out the producers with the best combination of land and attention to detail in the cellar, finally settling on one singular producer.
