4th Annual Salud! Chilean Wine Fest

Top Restaurants in 2 cities will pour a variety of Chilean wines by the glass and17 Retail Stores will offer in-store tastings of Chilean wines September 18-30, 2009

Once again Wines of Chile will delight New Yorkers and Washingtonians by marking Chilean Independence Day (September 18) with its Fourth Annual Salud! Chilean Wine Fest. 34 restaurants in New York and 14 in Washington will offer consumers the opportunity to experience a variety of Chile’s premium wines with special by-the-glass programs through the end of the month. Retail stores-12 in NY and 5 in DC-will also provide free in-store tastings throughout the two-week program as well.

Wine aficionados and amateurs alike are invited to visit the participating restaurants and shops to try some of Chile’s finest wines from a broad range of terroirs. “The Salud! Chilean Wine Fest enables consumers to learn about and taste a number of Chile’s different varietals, including its unique variety, Carmenere; its signature red grape, Cabernet Sauvignon; its flagship white grape, Sauvignon Blanc, as well as some of its emerging varieties such as Pinot Noir and Syrah.

“The timing of the Wine Fest couldn’t be more perfect as consumers continue to seek great quality at a better value,” explains Lori Tieszen, Executive Director of Wines of Chile USA. “To satisfy their needs, consumers should be thrilled to know that Chile produces top quality wines that are comparable at $10-$20 to many higher priced Old World selections, in addition to other delicious wines at higher price points.”
