Chile’s Image Dilemma - A Tasting with GVV Terroirs

What impression does Chilean wine leave on you? This was the thought running through my mind as I attended a presentation on Chilean wines by Stefano Gandolini and Cristian Muñoz of GVV Terroirs. That Chile is a reliable producer of affordable varietal wines is indisputable. From the parched Atacama desert in the north to the icy fjords of Patagonia, Chile offers a diverse viticultural landscape. It is also known for its signature red grape variety, Carmenere, and its phylloxera-free vineyards.
