Production Zones

The best climate for vines is Mediterranean with distinct seasons during the year. They need enough cold winters to encourage deep recess of plants and good sprouting in spring; and also need hot summers for the fruit to properly ripen. When the fruit is ready internally, it has to take color: to achieve this it is ideal to have marked differences in temperature between day and night.

Chile has an ideal climate, especially between regions III and VII. Each zone has its merits, but the end product is recognized all around the world, positioning Chile as the largest exporter of table grapes.

North

The Copiapo Valley opens its season in mid-November. Their grapes, the first to reach international markets, grow in a very dry climate with temperature differences, making the color very intense and its flavor very sweet. Prohens, our partners, are a flagship family of northern agriculture and its quality seal is in each cluster. The fruit from the northern valleys of Elqui and Ovalle, follow Copiapo on harvest date (mid-December onwards) and share similar characteristics.

Central and South

The fruit from the central zone begins at the Aconcagua Valley in mid-January; the Metropolitan, VI and VII regions follow this iconic grape production zone. The bulk of Chile’s volume is in these four regions. Climatic features are very good and allow for the creation of excellent fruit, some of which can even be stored in target until the late part of the season. This allows Chile to cover the market’s demand even until June.
