A refresher on Wines of Chile Here at Snooth, we've loved wines of Chile for a long time - since we started the site back in 2008. And now, ten years later, we still do. Take a refresher course on the wines of Chile before you pick up a bottle this weekend.

Chilean wine has had an interesting past few decades in the established markets of the northern hemisphere. The UK in particular has enjoyed these wines for decades, taking advantage of their modest prices and rather large capacity to satisfy the needs to both regular wine drinkers but more importantly those new to the pursuit. In hindsight it has proven to be a great strategy, with the UK remaining the most important market per capita for Chilean wine exports.

Chile’s wines appeal to the UK crowd, as well as wine lovers around the world, because they offer great value but beyond that there is something familiar about these wines that a European audience can relate to. Blessed with fine weather, there is more fruit here than on might find with a European wine but at the same time the underlying structure and framework can trace its lineage right back to the old world.
