I received this package a few weeks ago, containing 8 Sauvignon Blancs from Chile, courtesy of Wines of Chile, a group dedicated to the promotion of, wait for it, Chilean wine. It is a given that Chile turns out great value, yet they also make some of the most incredible top-end wines on the market today (Montes Folly, Almaviva, Don Maximilano from Concha y Toro, just to name a few).
Turns out I’ve been invited to participate in a virtual tasting with Fred Dexheimer, Master Sommelier and WoC special guest host, tonight online. I’ll have my notes up tomorrow, but you can follow along on Facebook or Twitter. On Twitter, you can follow the hashtags #SBChile. Pretty cool – I am getting excited about it, even though I get to do it at my very own kitchen table, with my Mrs., my 8 furry children, and some pan-seared shrimp and scallops to boot.
Let’s hear it for the Internet (thank you Al Gore!).
