‘The New Chile’ is the face of Wine Spectator’s May edition after Managing Editor Kim Marcus took a tour of Chile’s diverse wine regions when visiting earlier in the year. With a comprehensive report on Chile, the 22 page feature describes the new tendencies of Chile from cool climate plantings from the very northern plantations in Elqui to the rediscovery of old vines in the south of Chile.
During his time in Chile, Kim interviewed some key players in the Chilean wine industry and they all form part of the piece with clips of different interviews interspersed in the feature as well as a full-page feature on Aurelio Montes, Wines of Chile’s Vice-President.
As part of the feature there are also 350 Chilean wines reviewed and Kim has selected his Top Wines and his Top Value Wines. Chilean wineries that made it to both lists Concha y Toro, Lapostolle, Viña Almaviva, Viña Montes, Viña Santa Rita, Viña Errazuriz, Viña Koyle, Viña Seña, Viña Ventisquero, De Martino, Viña Cono Sur, Los Maquis, Viña San Pedro, Viña Bisquertt, Viña Leyda, Veramonte, Viña Casablanca, Viña Santa Carolina and Viña Tabali.
