In a delicious lunch hosted by Viña Cousiño Macul, great sommeliers from Chile and the world were gathered. Amongst them were Ricardo Grellet, best Chilean sommelier of 2010, and the distinguished Chilean Master Sommelier, Héctor Vergara.
Oh this occasion they were lavished with wines that showed the great quality, like Riesling 2008 and Antiguas Reservas 1990.
The sommeliers also were guided through the Macul’s cellar and other facilities. “Our guests were surprised by the long tradition of the winery, as by the taste of our wines. They liked the old cellar and the museum. They also had a chance to try a Lota 2006 with a traditional Chilean charquicán. The place, the wines and the lunch fascinated them”, assured Matías Ovalle, CEO of Cousiño Macul.
This occasion also celebrated the long trajectory of Héctor Vergara, who is about to retire after a long and distinguished career as a sommelier. He is the only Master Sommelier in Latin America and managing partner of the store “El Mundo del Vino”.
