Wines of Chile is currently hosting its 4th Sommelier Summit, in which it invites a select group of Sommeliers and a Winewriter from the US for a week-long tour of Chile’s wine regions, where they will get to know the country’s landscape, the characteristics, the wines and the people who make them.
The tour always concludes with a seminar for the national wine trade and media. See the Agenda below for the topics to be discussed.
Join us on Wednesday, October 28, in the Hotel W (Isidora Goyenechea 3000, Las Condes, Santiago, across from Plaza Perú).
