The Elqui Valley is the northernmost wine region in Chile. The coastal mountain range which tempers the cooling influence of the Pacific on all other Chilean wine regions disappears as you approach the Elqui Valley, bestowing upon it the winning combination of warm days and very cool nights with daily temperature swings of as much as 35C during the growing season.
Elevations range from 1,100 to 2,000 feet above sea level. Soils are very rocky with excellent drainage. Ripe and bright citrus notes are complimented by a kiss of grassy-jalapeno notes, minerality, and a briny character direct from the Pacific a mere 25 km from the vineyard.
