The Casablanca Valley (in Spanish Valle de Casablanca) is situated on the west side of Chile, very close to the Pacific Ocean. The ocean cools down the valley with wet breezes which help to regulate temperatures. From the east side it’s protected by coastal mountains. This, relatively young, wine region (the winemaking started in 1980’ ) is definitely the most modern one in the country. The Casablanca Valley is also a Chile’s first cool-climate wine-growing region (similar to California's Sonoma Valley). It has become famous for its, especially, white wine (over 65 %) and red wine, both made from cool-weather grape varietals like Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir and Syrah amongst few others.
