One of my favorite places in Chile is the Elqui Valley. I have been several times in my seven years in Chile, and I never bore of it up there. From my home in Santa Cruz it’s around an 8 hour drive north. Famous for it’s pisco, it also has some vineyards up there growing grapes for wine. A lot of wineries have syrah from that region. In fact my wife has bought syrah grapes from Elqui. It’s a very laid back area. Known for hippies and a magnetic rock covered in petroglyphs of llamas and a snake.
I was there last week with Matt Ridgway of (chileinvestments.com) We spent a few days up there. I needed to get some new images for a client and Matt needed to check out some properties. So here is a series of photographs made over the last few years.
I hope you enjoyed these images. Please remember they are all copyrighted and any use must first be arranged with Matt Wilson
