Located 300 km north of Santiago, this transverse valley or watershed has a semi-arid coastal climate from Ovalle to the coast.
This climate is characterized by low rainfall, moderate temperature oscillation and exposure to the constant influence of sea breeze.
The soils of Limarí are of a unique typicality, with the presence of calcium carbonate in different strata, giving an intense mineral character to the wines. This valley is also very rich in clay, wich holds water and nutrients, being especially favorable for Chardonnay and Pinot – both strains aimed at the super premium line, Marques de Casa Concha.
These climate conditions make this valley ideal for growing white varieties such as Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Viognier, and Pinot Gris, as well as cooler red varieties such as Pinot Noir and cold weather Syrah.
According to Javier Villarroel, senior enologist at Limarí Valley, the harvest in this valley is one of the longest in Chile, as the climate is favorable to keep the grapes ripening on the vine.
