Vina Aresti from the Curico Valley in Chile: a podcast with winemaker Juan Ignacio Montt

Chile is an exceptional country to grow vines in. Indeed, it is also the leading country of origin on our shelves here in Ireland and our brand leader (by quite a margin) is the Santa Rita label.

Vine growing in Chile is mainly concentrated in valleys running away from the Andes towards the Pacific Ocean. Over time the unique characteristics of these valleys and their contribution to ripening grapes have been analysed and studied. This has led to Cabernet Sauvignon perfection from the Maipo and crisp Sauvignon Blancs from the Casablanca Valleys. It's a great story. Have a look at the Wine Folly web site, explore each the main valleys and see how they are being developed.

Vina Aresti is unusual in Chile. It doesn't try to explore multiple valleys but instead focuses all of its winemaking from grapes grown in the one valley - the Curico. This is the largest of the 'wine valleys', lies 200 kms south of Santiago and has an incredible range of microclimates and soil types. See HERE for a fabulous and detailed account. It's a great download.

Vina Aresti winemaker Juan Ignacio Montt dropped in to the WinePod and explained all! (The Aresti labels are sold in Ireland through the SuperValu, Centra and Musgrave Retail Partners outlets)
