World of Wine: Chile & Argentina
Welcome to the Wonderful World of Wine tasting on Chile & Argentina, focusing on affordable and high quality wines.
99% of our reviews on TripAdvisor are rated five-star: "Learnt so much! Did an intro evening class to wine tasting based on wines from the Loire. Even though I spent a year living in this region, I learned a lot more about the different vineyards and came away with a lot of handy tips for picking a wine I'd like. I'm not a huge white wine drinker but was pleasantly surprised with a couple. I've already put my knowledge to good use in the supermarket today - picking a wine I never normally would have based on what I learned last night, and I have to admit, it's pretty good. A great evening and have just booked another evening in a few months time" (farmersto, Feb 2017, via TripAdvisor)
Part One: Chile
What makes Chile such an attractive ‘safe bet’ for a consumer? We’ll look at the facts, looking at the climate through to the diverse country that is Chile. White grape varieties such as the crisp Sauvignon Blanc, balanced Chardonnay and soft and smooth reds such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and the newly-famed Carmenere rule the roost. Anywhere that hosts a ‘Casablanca’ must be good news, ‘here’s looking at you kid!’
Part Two: Argentina
Although production (5th in the world) has been dropping, quality is rising. With a focus on the famed wine region Mendoza, Malbec has carved a reputation of high quality often notably higher than its’ French origins. But it doesn’t stop there; there’s plenty of Viognier, Torrontes and Shiraz to discover too, all the more for us to taste our way through.
