RAPEL VALLEY, CHILE is located in Chile's Central Valley and produces roughly a quarter of all Chilean wine. It runs directly south for 60 miles from the edges of Maipo Valley to the edge of the Colchagua province. The warm, dry region makes a wide range of wine styles, ranging from everyday wines to some of Chile's most expensive and prestigious offerings. Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Carmenere are the most important grape varieties planted here and the intense sunlight and fresh breezes make Rapel Valley a good place to produce Merlot.
