D.O.: Southern Region
The northernmost sector of the 3-valley ‘Southern Region,’ Itata is no newcomer to wine. Some of the earliest vineyards were planted near the port city of Concepción during colonial times. Today the region features a blend of old and new as new vertically positioned vineyards spring up alongside the ancient bush vines, providing plenty of opportunity for exploration and growth.
