I was quite surprised on my trip to Chile to see that the majority of wineries in the country seem to be farming relatively flat ground. In the abundance of good soil and land, few had made the investment of energy and money to plant hillside vineyards. However, some of the more ambitious winery projects in Chile tend to focus more on hillside fruit, often with good results. This is an image taken from the top of one side of the amphitheater-like vineyard holdings of Altair winery in the Cachapoal Valley, and shows both the sculpted vineyards as well as the impressive stone winery building. — Alder Yarrow
