Pisco Elqui

This idyllic village of fewer than 600 residents has two pisco plants. Once known as La Unión, the town, perched on a sun-drenched hillside, received its current moniker in 1939. Gabriel González Videla, at that time the president of Chile, renamed the village in a shrewd maneuver to ensure that Peru would not gain exclusive rights over the term "pisco." It's also a popular place for backpackers, so expect the usual run of hippie stores and plenty of hostels. Sunsets here are particularly beautiful.
