Huasco Valley

Huasco is a new frontier and discovery for Chilean wine. Located on the frontier of the Atacama Desert, it can produce exceptional wines in this extreme climate. This region can be subdivided into two regions: Coastal Huasco and Upper Huasco. In Coastal Huasco, about 20 kilometers from the Pacific Ocean, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, and Syrah wines grow amidst the cool coastal influence of the morning fog and the strong breezes coming from the Pacific Coast. The combination of these factors, along with the calcareous soils, produce elegant and complex wines, with a pronounced natural acidity and mineral and salty notes. On the other side, in Upper Huasco, inland from Vallenar, known as the region of Alto del Carmen, fresh, sweet, and aromatic wines have historically been produced, and which have received the name “pajarete,” a mixture of different Muscat grapes (very aromatic) grown at an altitude of over 1,100 meters (approx. 3,609 feet) above sea level.
