World of Wine - Chile and Argentina
Chile is one of the newest wine countries to export to the UK and is improving in leaps and bounds in wine quality. It has a wide variety of climates from the cool, maritime Casablanca Valley perfect for making delicious, crisp, Sauvignon Blancs to the warmer interior for ripe reds from Cabernet, Merlot and Pinot Noir. It also has its own grape variety, originating in Bordeaux called Carmenere.
Argentina, on the other side of the Andes mountain range, has an entirely different climate, much hotter and arrid, with a different aray of grapes, such as Malbec & the wonderful aromatic Torrontes. Altitude is the key to making such refreshing and vibrant wines; some vineyards are over 2,000 metres. Some excellent wines and really good value for money. We will taste a complete range of these great wines.
Both countries are producing some of the best value wines available at the moment and we will taste a variety of styles and prices - including several award winners
