Situated in one of the northernmost vineyard regions in Chile, Tabalí commands a unique location in the heart of the Limarí Valley, 250 miles north of Santiago and close to the edge of the Atacama Desert. The Limarí Valley sits at 700 feet elevation just southwest of the Atacama Desert, which is the driest place on Earth (no recorded rainfall in history).
Tabalí’s 180 ha of vineyards are nestled in the valleys running from the Andes Mountains down to the Pacific Ocean, where the local ‘Camanchaca’ fog blankets the Limarí area each morning, and afternoon coastal breezes bring cool air which moderates the ripening of the grapes.The result is a range of truly distinctive wines with elegance, restraint and minerality.
Viña Tabalí borders on the mystical ‘Valle del Encanto’ (Enchanted Valley), containing the Limarí Valley’s most significant archaeological sites. A sacred site of the ancient Molle and Diaguita culture, the many rock drawings and carved Tacita stones depict an ancient way of life. The Tabalí mask logo has been taken from one of these rock carvings, which can only be seen at certain times of day when the sun’s alignment makes them magically appear.
