Maipo is home to two of the most famous Chilean fine wine; the Cabernet-based wines Concha y Toro’s Don Melchor and Santa Rita’s Casa Real. These wines should be high on your tasting list (not to mention your investment list), along with the ubiquitous Vinedo Chadwick of course. With massive Andean peaks soaring up 2,600ft. above sea level, many of Maipo’s vineyards are planted at altitude. Alluvial flows, constant sunshine coupled with cool evenings create the ideal breeding ground for sumptuous black cherry red wines.
