The renowned Master Sommelier Matthew Stamp visited our San Rafael estate last week during his tour of wineries and vineyards throughout the country.
Matt will use the information he gathers about the Chilean wine industry and its projects for a detailed guide for US Sommeliers that will address topics such as Chile’s different styles and regions, wine history and culture, geography, geology, current viticultural and enological trends, and more.
The guide will also play a key role in a series of Master Classes for the US Sommelier Association.
At VIA Wines Matt had the opportunity to taste some of the best wines of our core brands, Oveja Negra, Chilcas, and Chilensis.
The day began with tastings guided by the head winemakers for each brand, who explained the philosophy behind their wines as well as their plans for the future before ending with a typical Maule Valley-style lunch.
