The wine-growing area of Chile stretches 600 miles north of Santiago and 600 miles south of the capital. Total vineyard area in the country is around 126,000 hectares with the red/white varieties split at 73% to 27%.
Cabernet Sauvignon dominates Chile's vineyards, accounting for almost one-third of all varieties grown. Sauvignon Blanc is a distant second, followed closely by Merlot, Chardonnay and Carmenere. With an average width of just 177km (the country is 4,300km in length), Chile's climate is heavily affected by The Andes to the east and the Pacific Ocean to the west. The country is framed by desert to the north and Antarctica to the south.
