Fiona Beckett: Passion for Chilean Carignan

fiona-beckettFiona Beckett is turning into a true fan of Chile and its wines! She had good things to say after having the opportunity to taste hundreds of wines and visit a number of wineries while here in April for the Best Sommelier in the World Competition, and now she’s found something new to cheer about.

I’ve spent most of my life disliking Carignan–the workhorse grape of the Languedoc–and now I find myself bewitched by its Chilean incarnation,” she said in her column recently after attending a tasting of old vine examples from Chile during the London International Wine Fair.
