The Chilean wine industry started in the 1500s with the first vineyard, but has only really exploded in the past 30 years. In the early 1800s, migrants from Europe brought with them a number of other grape varieties, especially from Bordeaux, contributing to the diversity of grape varieties here. Until 1990, most of the self-made wine bottles were consumed by the locals, rarely exported to foreign countries. Chilean winemakers are increasingly recognizing the importance of the export industry, from which the world knows its premium quality.
Chile does not focus on producing a wine (red, white or sparkling wine) to create its strengths. The growing industry is based on the diversity of wines with many typical grapes, Cabernet, Sauvignon, Merlot and Sauvignon Blanc being the most renowned.
