Chile has what Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson call in The World Atlas of Wine “a reliable Mediterranean climate, with day after day of uninterrupted sunlight in a dry, largely unpolluted atmosphere.” This together with other factors including its wide day to night temperature variation, the rarity of mildew and rot, and, perhaps, also the own-rootedness of its vines makes Chile a player on the world stage of fine wines.
