Located approximately 550 kilometers south of Santiago and just 30 kilometers from the Pacific Ocean, this is one of Chile’s southernmost viticultural regions. Here the Coastal Range is at its lowest, which increases the ocean’s influence. It has its own microclimate with warm days, cool nights, abundant precipitation and volcanic soil. These are ideal conditions for cool-climate varieties like Pinot Noir.
Tradition has its charm. And Maipo stands out as the leading wine valley for Porta. Located near the capital city of Santiago, with warm days and cool nights, this is the quintessential valley for red wine production. The soil is rich in minerals, with a sandy-clay texture and good drainage. Mountain rivers provide the irrigation required to make this a perfect winegrowing spot.
