Travel Channel Premier Party with Wines of Chile

confessions-of-travel-writerWines of Chile partnered with ProChile in celebrating the US television premier of the Travel Channel’s Confessions of a Travel Writer, which aired for the first time on Monday, August 10 at 9pm and chronicled, in reality-TV format, a group of travel writers on a week-long press trip to Chile.

Among the visits that were made on the road from Santiago to Torres del Paine, the group of writers scheduled a stop at the Casa Marin winery, which (thanks to a generous donation) was featured prominently among the wines provided at the event.

The party was held at New York’s Grace Hotel, home to one of the only pool-side bars in New York City, and hosted an enthusiastic audience of 150 writers and bloggers.

    Have you all seen the negative comments viewers said about this show on Chile ? …. the link below is for an article about the show and the number of people that didn’ t appreciate how Chile was shown is incredible! Seems like it wasn’t good publicity and the host of the show was very negative about Chile.

    I haven’t seen the show (it hasn’t aired in Chile), but all the negative comments seemed to be directed at the participants, and one writer in particular, rather than at Chile itself… so all the negative backlash against him may have a result in Chile’s favor and encourage people to come and see for themselves what all the fuss is about!

    There’s alot of things to say about this show, but luckily Chile pretty much came up smelling like roses. If the host wants to complain that Torres del Paine is too far afield, and that they’ve been in a (cushy) van for 6 hours, then maybe Patagonia’s just too remote for him. How well did he survive in Mongolia, one wonders?

    I blogged about this, if you’d like to give it a look. Mostly I wonder what has become of The Travel Channel such that they had to stoop to such a poor-quality show. That’s okay, more Chile for the rest of us!
