Mysteries of Chile in your glass

Mysteries of Chile in your glass

If you look at the world map, you can notice a thin bright yellow strip in the south-western part of South America, that looks like a pistol holster. This is Chile - local Switzerland. There is a version that the name of the country comes from the language of the local aymara tribe and means “a place where the land ends”.

Chile is a country of mysterious statues, frozen volcanoes, crystal lakes, snow-white beaches, snowy mountains and lifeless deserts. To go there means to dive not only into a different culture but into a different world. There you can find warm sea and icy mountains, dry desert and blooming valleys.

Chile is rich both in natural and hand-made landmarks. There are a lot of historical monuments there and echoes of ancient civilisations. Architecture of large cities rivals that of European ones. But the true pride of Chile is its wine. The country’s trademark is the Carmenere grape which was revived here when it was lost to the European winemakers in the middle of the 19th century.
