Concha y Toro
Chile is giving France a run for its money as Japanese women increasingly plump for Chile's fruit-driven and reasonably priced wine over its French counterparts.
db braved the South American summer as a guest of Concha y Toro last week on a trip that took in the company's Chilean and Argentine vineyards and its centre for research and innovation. Much wine, grilled meat, sunshine and other such deprivations followed.
After all the fun of the Wine and Spirits Fair last week, Hong Kong still provided a host of wine-fuelled events, including a fantastic Kumeu River Chardonnay tasting and a swanky Rimarts Cava disgorgement dinner held in Macau.
