Global Vineyard Portfolio Tastings grey_divider_long grey_divider_long Newsletter Sign Up
In September we hosted our first Global Vineyard Portfolio Tasting, the “Bridging the Americas” tour. Our winemakers from Chile, Argentina and Uruguay came to pour their wines for our distributors and important retailers and restaurateurs in Charlotte, Chicago and San Francisco. The events in each city were very successful and well-attended, as the trade took full advantage of the opportunity to meet and talk with all our winemakers under one roof and taste directly from the source. It was like a mini-trip to South America! GVI_PT_Group We would like to thank everyone that was able to make it to our tasting events and a very special thanks to all of our winemakers in the photo above from left to right: Benjamín Mei (Apaltagua), Eduardo Reinero (Meli), Pablo Barros (Apaltagua), Rodrigo Lewinsohn (William Cole/Albamar), Pedro & Patricio Santos (Tercos/Santos), Rodrigo Romero & José Tomás Marin (Calcu and Maquis), Jean-Pascal Lacaze (Domus Aurea) and Juan Andrés Marichal (Bodegas Marichal). Cristina_Salsicha Finally, we bid a fond farewell to Cristina Snider, our faithful office manager of eleven years. She will take a break from the busy pace of our office for a few months before moving on to her next chapter. We will miss Cristina and her little dachshund, Salsicha, and wish them nothing but good luck in the future.
