Abstract

Before the Pinochet regime, Chile's wine industry was restricted and protected by national laws. Chile's wine was a low-quality beverage to satisfy a thirsty nation ; most of the wine grapes were dry farmed in the Coast Range south of Cauquenes and on adjacent parts of the Central Valley. In the 1980s a dramatic drop in wine drinking forced surviving and new wineries to adopt the technology of the wine revolution. Today, Chilean wineries emphasize premium varietals and production for export. Although wine production has shifted northward, Santiago still articulates the industry. - (SLD)
