WINE & POETRY / San Antonio Valley

The San Antonio Valley, located an hour from Santiago and just 50 minutes from the port city of Valparaíso, is known for its production of elegant Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, and Pinot Noir.
Just 20 km (12.5 miles) from the Pacific Ocean, the region is clearly marked by a maritime influence and a diversity of soil types that allow for white and red wines of extraordinary quality.
The valley is the birthplace of Chile’s first cold-climate Syrah as well as the country’s finest Pinot Gris, both of which represent the audacity and originality of their producers.
The success has been such that many of Chile’s large and well-established wineries from other valleys are now buying land of their own in this privileged valley.

Winery visits include: Matetic, Casa Marín, Garcés Silva, and Leyda.
