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.
The kit includes a selection of 6 wines (187 ml / 6.3 oz. each ) – easily enough for two people to taste. The wines have been carefully selected by a CIA wine and beverage professor to illustrate the concepts of the area of focus.
These kits are typically only available for CIA master’s degree students.
