Guild of Sommeliers: Chile Seminar and tasting with Master Sommelier Fred Dexheimer
Wines of Chile USA’s partnership with the Guild of Sommeliers, a non-profit, member-run organization, committed to development, inspiration and exchange of information for wine service professionals across the U.S. is continuing into its fourth year. WoC and the Guild will conduct Chilean wine Seminars taught by Fred Dexheimer, Master Sommelier in Washington DC on April 9, Miami on April 11, San Francisco on April 18 and New York City on April 30.
The 2013 Chilean wine seminars will focus on Chardonnay, natural/organic/biodynamic/sustainable wine and Chilean Icon wines. Each city is expected to attract 40-50 attendees. Fred will guide attendees through the tasting and educate them on the extraordinary, but often under-represented Chardonnay, plus the developing natural/organic/biodynamic wines being produced in Chile. Fred will finish off the tasting by highlighting the top high-end wines known as “Icons.”
After the tasting all attendees will be tested on Chilean wine regions and history, plus be required to complete a blind tasting on two Chilean wines. The highest scoring attendee in each market will accompany Fred Dexheimer MS, Matt Stamp, MS and/or Geoff Kruth MS on the WoC sommelier trip to Chile in October 2013. Chardonnay, natural wine and Chile’s Icon wines are of great interest to sommeliers, plus the possibility of winning a trip to Chile, accompanied by Master Sommeliers is sure to attract high numbers of qualified and influential sommeliers to each seminar.
