Peru wine Country
The Peruvian wine tradition started, as for several South American countries when the first Spanish colonizers planted some vines in the 16th century. With a climate similar to Chile, Perù’s production of alcoholic beverages is more focused on brandy and spirits. However, local winemakers are able to produce luscious wine from grape varieties that adapt really well to a warm tropical climate.
One of the number 1 varieties grown and then processed in Perù is Grenache, a red grape from France, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Malbec. Also, various forms of Muscat and Sauvignon Blanc proved to be good alternatives and flourish in tropical areas.
Perù has no designated appellations for wine, but the Prisco brandy has a PDO (Protected Designation of Origin), which is made in the coastal valleys around the city of Prisco. This area can also be considered as the heart of the wine production, together with Ica, Chincha, Tacna and Moquengua. All these valleys and regions are submersed in stunning and jaw-dropping landscapes.
