2010 Bicentennial Edition of Guía de Vinos de Chile

guia-2010-tapa-250hChile’s oldest wine guide has just launched its 16th edition. After a one-year hiatus for personal reasons, the authors are back with a new and improved version of the Guía de Vinos de Chile dressed in shades of copper in keeping with Chile’s 2010 Bicentennial.

The 400-plus page tome includes completely updated information on Chile’s wine industry, regions, varietals, wines, food and wine pairing, wine-friendly restaurants, a series of special awards and a rating of 1,400 wines purchased in a variety of Santiago-area shops and stores.

The wines were tasted blind over several weeks with panels of 75 members of the local industry, including winemakers, wine writers, sommeliers, and selected knowledgeable consumers.

The guide is available in wine shops and book stores throughout the country.
