Chile (/ˈtʃileɪ/ or /ˈtʃɪli/), officially the Republic of Chile (Spanish: República de Chile, [reˈpuβlika ðe ˈtʃile] ), is a South American country occupying a long, narrow strip of land between the Andes mountains to the east and the Pacific Ocean to the west. It borders Peru to the north, Bolivia to the northeast, Argentina to the east, and the Drake Passage in the far south. Chilean territory includes the Pacific islands of Juan Fernández, Salas y Gómez, Desventuradas, and Easter Island in Oceania. Chile also claims about 1,250,000 square kilometres (480,000 sq mi) of Antarctica, although all claims are suspended under the Antarctic Treaty.

    • Wine Pairing Recommendations for Hometown Foods #SundaySupper

      This week’s #SundaySupper theme is all about hometown and the wonderful memories one’s favorite hometown foods may evoke.

I’ve spent (way) more than half my life in California.

    • Six iconic wines this week – some true bargains, too

      All six wines this week are iconic world wine styles. 2013 Mâcon-Villages, Chapelle aux Loups, Louis Jadot, Burgundy France (£11.99, Waitrose). Waitrose gets a little shirty when I point out forthcoming discounts before they’re live, but I advise you to head to Waitrose on Wednesday – it will be worth your while! This is a stunning, top class Chardonnay from a legendary prod ...

  • Chile, Chardonnay, Cocha y Toro, Serie Riberas, Gran Reserva, Colchagua Valley, 2012

    Chile, Chardonnay, Cocha y Toro, Serie Riberas, Gran Reserva, Colchagua Valley, 2012 N/ 4 out of 10 on the butterscotch scale. Very agreeable and pronounced wafts of sun bleached rock. Outside of the actual tea, this is an amazing mimic of the aroma of chamomile. Sea spray, and a hint of iodine/kelp. Really, really nice. One of the nicer Chilean chardonnay noses I’ve encountered. 6 readers -
  • Anakena Cabernet Sauvignon, 2011 $13

    Chile, Cachapoal Valley While shopping for a few new Cabs to try and write about the wine sales clerk voiced a definite “thumbs up” for this one. For the price point, I figured why now. It opened up with bold aromas of black cherries, dark chocolate, toasted wood and hints of earthy minerals. I guess you could say it has some typical qualities on the nos ...

    … I didn’t have a chance to visit many wineries in Chile — the hotel I selected was on the wrong side of the mountain. But the vineyards here are stupendously beautiful, and the wines I’ve tried exhibit rich fruit, prominent spice and good structure. What a blessing, to visit such a scenic wine region that produces such elegant wines! It’s sheer…

  • A Must for Savvy Fans

    … In case you have not been reading, Chile is the new star in Sauvignon Blanc. Producing wines that bridge the austerity of the original Sancerre, and the herbaceous/fruity quality of the Kiwi edition. While under-cutting both by a good $5. This organic wine from Torres could not be more exuberant – tingles the palate with lots of ‘lets get started’. Amazingly close to a dry martini. Nuff said.

  • 2015 is Year to Explore, Travel

    …. Argentina and Chile continue to produce wines which seem to improve with each vintage. Everyone knows of Argentinian Malbec but look for a Bonarda for something different. Bonarda will often have many of the same taste characteristics but a bit more of a smoky hint on the palate. Don’t be afraid of Indiana wines. Nothing frustrates me more than…

Four of these wines are made using grapes that don't quickly come to top of mind when thinking of Spanish wines - these are Mencía, Mazuelo (Carignan), Graciano, and the indigenous Prieto Picudo. All four wines can be enjoyed over the next few years. More familiar to those who drink Spanish wines is the Garnacha grape (a.k.a. Grenache) - the Casa…
