The lunch, sponsored by Wines of Chile in its effort to promote Chilean wine around the globe, was held at Mielcke & Hurtigkarl, one of Copenhagen’s most unique and elegant restaurants.

A positive ambience

Twenty-four wines accompanied a special 6-course meal prepared by the restaurant’s excellent culinary team.
