Master the World Wine Tasting: The New World - Southern Hemisphere - Kit Two

Chile with Professor Timothy Buzinski

Many wine experts compare Chile to California as having some of the best soils and climate for growing grapes in the world. Cool climate Sauvignon Blanc from the coastal Casablanca region begins the exploration of Chile’s wines, however, the rest of the kit demonstrates the prowess of Chile with red wines like Bordeaux varieties like Cabernet Sauvignon from the Maipo Valley and Carmenere from Colchagua. Two red varieties that unite Chile’s past with the present, Pais and Carignan are included, along with a beautiful red blend from one of Chile’s grand cru vineyards, Clos Apalta.

Please note that this course is only available for purchasers of the accompanying tasting kit.
