Mercado Chileno returns to London

After the successful first edition last year, Mercado Chileno is back. London will get a flavour of Chile on 13 September for a celebration of Chilean wine.

A full day of wine tasting, live music and dance, as well as delicious Chilean food stalls, will bring a flavour of Chile to the heart of London in the Old Truman Brewery on 13 September. This full day and evening event invites both trade and consumers to come and sample over 300 wines from more than 50 producers that span the length and width of Chile's wine regions.

Wine is more than just what's in the glass, and Mercado Chileno will take its visitors to Chile for a day with live music and dance as well as Chilean cuisine to give everyone the full impact of Chile and see what the Chilean character and terroir is all about. Winemakers will also be on hand to talk about what makes Chile a special wine country and answer any questions on Chilean wine, culture and travel.

Special themed wine tables this year will include:

  • Chile Champions
  • Super Sparklers
  • The Carignan Club

If you are eager to plan your tasting tour of Chile already, the full list of wineries participating is available here and if you are a Chilean wine producer who doesn't want to miss out on this award-nominated event you can still register here.

Full details are available on the Mercado Chileno website, and consumers can get their tickets now here. Don't miss out!
