She explains the importance of the country’s diversity of terroirs, the push for ever more quality, the focus on Sauvignon Blanc (“Chile’s Fastest-Growing Wine”), Carmenere (“Chile’s Signature Grape”), Syrah (“Chile’s Next Great Red”), Cabernet Sauvignon (“The King of Red Wines”), and (“Chardonnay “).
