Discover why Chile’s Diversity Lies in its Terroir
Chile’s outstanding diversity of wines stems from the country’s extraordinary geography and unique climate. Regionality is the key to Chile’s stylistic development and winemakers are striving to reflect the different terroirs that the country can offer, especially in the cooler coastal areas and in the Andean foothills.
Avid wine consumers today recognize the names Casablanca, Maipo and Colchagua, but these are just the beginnings of a host of appellations. It is this mosaic of terroirs and wineries that composes Wines of Chile.
Explore New Wines
Many of the wines will be featured in Canada for the first time. Guests will be treated to a truly rare cultural experience as they discover, taste and learn about the world of Chilean wine. In a casual relaxed setting, guests will enjoy Chilean fusion cuisine and meet with representatives from the wineries as they sample from an array of red and white varietals.
Themed tables will feature Trophy Winners from the 10th Annual Wines of Chile Awards and Natural Choice “Green” wines. Participating winery tables include: Calcu, Carmen, Cousiño Macul, Concha y Toro, Emiliana, Errazuriz, Maquis, MontGras, Morandé, Pérez Cruz, San Esteban, San Pedro, Siegel, Terraustral, Ventisquero, VIA, Villaseñor, Volcanes de Chile, Santa Rita, Santa Carolina.
Catering will be provided by Daniel et Daniel and a collection of Chilean music will be styled by Bellosound.
