(Anconcagua Region)

NONE!!

This whole Zone is 'Costa'

What is the biggest threat to a vintage in Casablanca Valley?

Frost

Since the area is coastal it is very humid and cool.

The cool temperatures and breezes brought through the entrance of the Coastal Range mountains --where Casablanca is located-- forms nightly fog, especially in the crucial month of November.

Wind machines and frost prevention are used quite a bit here.

4

What geographical features make Casablanca Valley good for cool climate grapes?

It is at a break in the Coastal Ranges mountains so it is the beneficiary of cool winds that are a result of the Humboldt Current.

Kind of like how the Van Duzer Corridor affects McMinnvile in Willamette, OR.

Casablanca also gets nightly fog.
