Welcome to our next installment of #WinephabetStreet. In this series, Debbie Gioquindo and I will be working our way through the wine world by way of the alphabet. Each month we will take the next letter in the alphabet and learn the characteristics and history of the grape, as well as suggested wine pairings. So uncork, unscrew or saber that bottle and connect with us as we chat, laugh and drink wine all in a laid back atmosphere.
I is for Itata Valley
Vines first appeared in the Itata Valley not far from the bay of Concepción in the 1500s and its reputation as a wine region continued to grow until the 1800s when the more fertile soils of the Central Valley to the north became fashionable.
Itata Valley, the largest winegrowing region in Southern Chile is located at the cross of the Itata and Ñuble Rivers, this area features unique characteristics in the southern lands: its humid Mediterranean weather, the presence of lower temperatures than in other valleys and well defined seasons, a good soil and plenty of light.
