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 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 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 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.
Great value at £27.50 and includes at least 6 wines to taste, tasting notes and a selection of cheese and ham to nibble on!
