Personal Appearance     Tasting (sit down)     Wine    
You are cordially invited to join us in welcoming two world-class winemakers on Friday, September 15 from 4pm to 7pm.

Isabel Mitarakis Guilisasti of Concha y Toro and German di Cesare of Trivento will be joining us to pour some of our favorite wines and serving delicious Chimichurri steak sandwiches straight from the grill.

Isabel is an agronomist from the Universidad Católica de Chile, with specialization in oenology. She began her professional career in the harvests of Concha y Toro in 2011, working in the winemaking process of the wines of Viña Maycas del Limarí, which come from the company’s vineyards in the Limarí Valley, and in the Puente Alto cellar, participating in the winemaking of the different lines of premium wines, working closely with the winemakers Marcelo Papa and Enrique Tirado. In Chile, during the 2012 harvest, she was an assistant to the work team of the Puente Alto cellar, offering direct technical assistance to the winemakers Sebastián Rodríguez and Marcelo Papa in treating the wines, testing, fermentation, blending and all the winemaking processes in casks for the lines Marqués de Casa Concha, Maycas del Limarí, Casillero del Diablo, Amelia and Trio. Isabel joined the prestigious Don Melchor team in January of 2013 and is honored to taste five vintages of this famous Chilean wine with you all.

What could be better than tasting with one highly talented, internationally renowned winemaker?

Tasting with two, of course.

Highly regarded for making award-winning wines at Trivento’s 3,185-acre estate in Mendoza, Argentina, German di Cesare is also known for his warmth, spontaneity and musical prowess. Di Cesare has been putting his stamp on Trivento’s wines since February 2002, when he joined the winery and took on various jobs in the cellar, barrel room and laboratory. In 2008, he was assigned responsibility for the winery’s Trivento Reserve range, as well as the Amado Sur line of contemporary blends and Brisa de Otoño, a late-harvest wine. When those wines won awards in competitions around the world, di Cesare was pegged to oversee the production of Trivento’s Golden Reserve range of cru single varietal wines in 2009.
