Chile has many advantages for producing wine, the climate is near perfect combination of heat and the cooling influence of the Pacific ocean. The ripening season is long and even, and the use of irrigation from the Andes supplies the vines with the perfect amount of water. The main challenge is that the vines can produce too many grapes with a lower quality.
As the demand for wine in Chile fairly low, the export of the wine has become a vital part of their economy. This has led to the plantings of classic grape varieties to satisfy the global market.
