It has a publications page. The most recent is from 2007 - 2008 and has a fair amount of data for regions IV - VII. Obviously the air temperature and precipitation data are useful, but this one also has soil temperature data, which are useful for telling when to direct seed things out in the field. I think I saw some tables on number of days with frost too.

That should help, thanks!

I'm also trying to avoid areas with high levels of contamination. Do you (or anyone) know if there's a map showing where all the mining operations are?

In the Central Valley south of Santiago you will need irrigation all the way down to the Bio Bio and some think beyond, it may have sufficient rain fall on a yearly basis but during the summer growing season not much falls. There are dry grown vines in the VII region but they are very old and have very deep roots, much different than annual veggies crops.
It's all about the wine.
