The Limarí Valley is located in the Coquimbo Region, about 450 kms (280 miles) north of the city of Santiago. Its annual rainfall is low, around 70-100 mm. (3-4 inches), with temperatures fluctuating between 9°C (48ºF) and 27° C (80º) in summer. This valley receives great influence from the Pacific Ocean, bringing the so-called “camanchaca” (intense fog that comes from the sea) that causes grapes to ripen slowly for a better care of aromas and flavours.
