Chile is the ninth largest wine producing country in the world with a climate that has been described as midway between that of California and France. Chile is a long, narrow country that is geographically and climatically dominated by the Andes to the east and the Pacific Ocean to the west. Chile's vineyards are found along a 1300-kilometre stretch of land from the Atacama Region to the Bío Bío Region in the south.
