In this podcast we cover Chile, a country with some really great wines and some very interesting history behind it in the wine world.
Here's the LINK
- We discuss how this long, narrow country's isolation has led to a bunch of developments -- great for wine, less good for politics
- We talk about the climate, geography, and main grapes
- Then we hit the long history of winemaking, starting with the Conquistadores and hitting on some of the key developments (including the influence of Bordeaux) that made the Chilean wine industry what it is today
- The grape confusion and the rebirth of Sauvignon Blanc and Carménere in Chile
- Then we hit on regions and what to expect from the wines of this long, skinny country.
