Now in its third year, the event’s latest theme is “Cabernet Family Origins: a global journey and comparative tasting”. Under this banner, the two-day workshop will explore the genetic makeup of the Cabernet grapes through a series of tastings, each featuring examples of these varieties from around the world.

Aimed at the press, independent merchants, wine educators, buyers and the on-trade, the all-day event will take place on Wednesday 15 January and Thursday 16 January at the Institute of Civil Engineers, 1 Great George St, London.

Chairman Tim Atkin MW will head a panel of speakers that includes oenologist Brian Croser and members of the Santa Rita Estates team: Santa Rita winemaker Andrés Ilabaca, Carmen winemaker Sebastián Labbé, Nativa winemaker Felipe Ramirez and Doña Paula winemaker David Bonomi.

Explaining the aim of this programme, the producer’s UK & Ireland commercial director Terry Pennington said: “As a wine group, Santa Rita Estates firmly believes that the key to the continued success and support by the consumer of the South American wine category lies in the education of the trade.

Setting the South American Wine Workshops within the company’s wider educational initiatives during the last three years, Pennington commented: “We have been greatly encouraged by the enthusiasm and willingness of the trade to learn as demonstrated by the demand for places on our workshops.

“By working together as an industry we can progress in securing the confidence of the consumer for the premium Chilean and Argentinean sector.”
