What more delightful way to end the long hot summer than with a special Franco-Chilean wine from Santiago, Chile! As one of the most important wines of the region, Almaviva is the brainchild between Mouton Rothschild and Concha y Toro. Crossing the old world and the new to create some of the best wines in the Southern Hemisphere, the wine embodies the best of both worlds, with age-old French savior-faire and ideal Chilean terroir and climate. The result is a Bordeaux Classic-style Cabernet Sauvignon blend that is powerful and complex, with a much softer drinkable tannin at its youthful vintages.
Ready for a bit of old and new world together? We're having one of the best Chilean wine from Almaviva, a Grand Cru Classé equivalent in Chile for a wine pairing dinner on Thurs Aug 25th. Seated are limited, contact me now if you're interested in joining? It's gonna be a very special one.
