Dating back nearly 500 years, the winemaking tradition in Chile is one of the oldest in the New World. Today, their wines have sparked tremendous interest by everyone from Master Sommeliers to the casual wine drinker. There is no question as to why: Chile is one of the world’s mow important wine-producing countries. In fact, many insiders call Chile a “winegrower’s paradise”

Take this class to discover the wide range of great wines made in Chile: from the crisp, grassy Sauvignon Blanc of the Casablanca valley to the elegant, age-worthy Cabernets made in  Colchagua Valley and their signature Carmenère grape grown in Maipo Valley.
