Wines of Chile USA is partnering 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., to provide Chilean Terroir Master classes with Fred Dexheimer, Master Sommelier in Las Vegas on Tuesday July 24th, 2012 These will be the last of six Sommelier Guild Chilean Educational classes that Fred will give in 2012. Last year the seminars were very well attended by local sommeliers and were a very educational and eye opening experience for the attendees.
The Las Vegas Sommelier Guild Chilean Terroir Master Class will take place at the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas with approximately 30 – 40 area sommeliers attending each tasting. Fred will lead the group through 4 key varieties: Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir, Syrah and Carmenere from 3 distinct regions in Chile. Las Vegas is a new market for Wines of Chile and we believe we will make a big impact. Las Vegas has a very large presence of sommeliers, with more Master Sommeliers than any other city in the country. Conducting educational tastings in these cities will increase Chile’s visibility in these new markets.
