History

Chile has been a wine-producing country since the first European settlers arrived in the mid-16th century. The original vines were brought by missionaries, via Peru, California and directly from Spain; they needed wine for sacramental purposes.

For centuries, Chilean wine was limited to a domestic market, but in the 1980s the country's winemakers began pursuing export markets. They have succeeded in gaining worldwide recognition by producing not only consistent, good-value wines, but also some world-class reds.

Whereas Chilean winemakers had traditionally used tanks and barrels made of beech wood, stainless steel tanks and oak barrels were introduced in the 1980s, marking the start of a new, technology-driven era.
