Chile’s Valle del Bío-Bío refreshing Pinot Noir, served chilled
Chile, Valle del Bío-Bío, First Class, Pinot Noir, 2016

The Bío-Bío Valley is ca. 350km south from Santiago and one of its most southern wine regions. Having said that, pioneering efforts are made by wine companies to challenge it even more by going further south, another ca. 500km. This pinot noir is marketed by PLB under the First Class brand, which brings a number of wines to the shelf from around the world.

The Bío-Bío valley wine region forms part of the Sur (south) together with the other sub-regions of Itata and Malleco. This wine area is developing, but does not have the protection of the Andes like the more northern wine regions, it is cooler and wetter. Historically the region is known for its fishing and a variety of industries, such metal works and forestry.
