Chilean wine rocks Brazil, and more than 700 people turned out to sip the finest from more than 40 Chilean wineries at the recent Tasting Wines of Chile São Paulo event held on August 10 in the Hotel Unique.
In addition to the more than 200 wines being poured, ProChile also offered a selection of Chile’s fine olive oils and two educational tables that put the spotlight on Carmenere and Sauvignon Blanc.
Brazilian opinion leaders and members of the press were invited to a special seminar that included a presentation by Chilean terroir specialist Pedro Parra (for further information see this article by Alvaro Cézar Galvao in Divino Guía: “Pedro Parra, o Dr Terroir, encanta enófilos em palestra no primeiro seminário Terroirs do Chile“).
The second part of the seminar was a 10-wine guided tasting:
