The Wine Bar War commences…

Tonight four unique pop up wine bars will be opening their doors in New York for an entertaining evening of Chilean whites, reds and bubblies to battle it out for a chance to win trip of a lifetime to Chile.

Captained by renowned young sommeliers Anna Lisa Campos, Morgan Harris, Chris Raftery and Victoria James the four sommelier teams sipped and swirled their way through 72 wines from Chile’s different wine regions to select their 8 wines that will line the shelves of their pop up wine bar this week. The sommelier teams also did a special masterclass led by Master Sommeliers Fred Dexheimer and Hector Vargara to get all the insider info on Chile’s hottest wine regions and movements.

The four teams are spending all of today to build their own wine bar in just one day, and get ready to open to the public this evening in a bid to impress and spread the word on Chilean wines. The winning team that provides the most interesting and successful wine bar will then be flown down to Chile in the Spring to experience the wine regions and top tourism destinations of Chile first hand.
