Chile has a system of regional DOs (denominations of orgin) in which regions are divided into subregions. The names of these are usually taken from the rivers that flow from the Andes to the Pacific.
Sunshine, fertile soils, a mild moderate climate and meltwater from the Andes combine to create ideal conditions for production of quality Cabernet Sauvignon in Central Valley.
