Chile is one of the newest wine countries to export to this country and is improving in leaps and bounds in wine quality. Chilean Wine offers some of the best value quality wine on sale in Britain and Chile has been described as the perfect place to make wine by Spanish wine mogul Miguel Torres. It has a wide variety of climates from the cool, maritime Casablanca Valley perfect for making delicious, crisp Sauvignon Blanc to the warmer interior for ripe reds From Cabernet and Merlot. 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 arid & also has its own grape varieties in the shape of Malbec & the wonderful aromatic Torrontes. All are incredibly consistent and excellent value for money.
We will taste at least 6 of these great wines. As ever we always provide some nibbles to accompany the wines.
