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 signature grape variety, Carmenere.
Argentina, on the other side of the Andes mountain range, has an entirely different climate, much hotter and more arid, with a different array of grapes, such as Malbec and the wonderful aromatic Torrontes. Altitude is the key to making such refreshing and vibrant wines; some vineyards are over 2,000 metres.
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 £25.00, includes at least 6 wines to taste, tasting notes and a selection of nibbles.
