Famous for its pisco production, Chile’s Elqui Valley is one of the country’s most enchanting andpeculiar places. Carpeted in the fluorescent green of grape vines, the valley stands in starkcontrast to the arid hills to either side. Pisco isn’t the only thing produced here either; custardapples, avocados, papayas and oranges are also cultivated in the area. Several of the valley’spisco distilleries are open for tours and tastings.
