This is Chile’s most productive and internationally known wine region, due predominately to its proximity to the national capital Santiago. It is located directly across the Andes’ from one of Argentina’s wine regions: Mendoza Province. Within the Central Valley there are four wine growing subregions: the Maipo Valley, the Rapel Valley, the Curicó Valley and the Maule Valley.

- The Rapel wine region in the Colchagua Province is known for its Carmenere and Cabernet.
