This is a blog with my personal reviews of the Wines of Chile, the comments are solely the opinion of the author, but of course are spot on.

All the wines reviewed may not be available in all markets and prices vary so much that publishing a range is difficult. Use one of the Wine search engines to find the wine.The author is a fan of New World wines and particularly those from Chile, some may recognize the reviews as the WSET (Wine and Spirits Education Trust)quality assessment. I find this much better than the 100, 20, ABC, 1-5 star systems as the assessment is very qualitative in nature. The wines will range from Acceptable to Good to Very Good and at the top Outstanding. These may be further defined by a + or – at each level.

I hope this gives you information to help you make a well-informed purchase so you can enjoy the wine.

Its all about the Wine.

  1. Just saw your comment on Steve Heimoffs Sommelier Wine post…you’ve sent Sommelier back to the cellar crying! Awesome. Are you on twitter ’cause that one event is enough to have me want to listen to you.

  2. Hello. I´m a somellier in Leon Mexico and a good follower of your post. I´m looking forward to make a trip to Chile on March 2015. If you possibly can recommend me some winneries to visit (around 5 or 6) I´ll be very greatful. I pretend to make tourism but also learn a little bit about Chile´s winemaking. I will travel with my wife and we maybe will stay for 2 or 3 days in Santiago, before moving to Mendoza and then to Montevideo.
    Thank you very much for your help
