The history of Chilean wine goes back to the 16th century and the time of the Spanish conquest: the first vines were planted at that time from stock brought on ships from Spain.

Fine European stock was introduced in the middle of the 19th century, and major technological advances came in the 1980s, followed by a tremendous surge in exports of Chilean wine in the past 20 years.
