Southern Chile’s Araucanía Region is well-suited to growing apples. In fact it has many native apple varieties from decades of local breeding. Quebrada del Chucao, a cidery owned by a pair of cousins, one of which is a winemaker having studied at Universidad Católica de Chile and the other a graphic designer, hence the very handsome label. The cider has nicely crisp acidity and is very, very dry. Utilizing the same method as Champagne, the bubbles are a natural result of the fermentation process. Lovely when matched with pork or cheese or served as an aperitif.
