Chile’s moderate temperature and few weather related problems have resulted in healthy crops producing balanced wine in different regions. This is a change of pace from 2017 when the weather was hot and there was an early harvest. Chile’s major production regions reported a good year for wine quality and average to above average yields. The coast and the north have had an especially good year due to the winter rains’ reduction on the constant drought threat. In the south of Chile, production has been relatively normal despite producers of the region facing frost, rain and fires in previous years.
