It might not be as sensationalist as the launch of a new product, but there’s an important stylistic shift occurring among an increasing number of Chile’s reds.
While Chile is best known for its Bordeaux blends, it’s Mediterranean grapes that are becoming an increasing focus for the country’s winemakers.
As part of a move to more southerly wine regions, particularly Itata, Chile is starting to create varietal and blended products using the País grape.
Concha y Toro is to launch a País and Cinsault blend from old vines in Maule and the Itata Valley under its upmarket Marqués de Casa Concha label.
Concha y Toro is bringing down the alcohol level of its Casillero del Diablo Cabernet in a bid to make it more “drinkable”.
The success of this month’s Tour de France Grand Départ has helped boost UK sales of the event’s official wine sponsor Cono Sur by 73.6%.
Casillero del Diablo has announced the launch of a tour bus campaign to promote the brand in the UK.
A new online platform offering companies the chance to open up an “online shop” is attracting the attention of leading drinks businesses in Singapore.
Concha y Toro has embarked on a mission to double its UK business to 10 million cases annually in the next five years.
Maycas del Limarí’s Marcelo Papa Marcelo Papa outlines his altered approach to making Pinot and his belief in the potential for the particular grape in Chile’s Limarí Valley.
