Carmeneres from Chile

                                                                              Wednesday, January 3rd

Trapp Family Lodge Wine Cellar

 

 

 

Chile has been known for their Carmenere for some time now.  As Malbec is for Argentina, Carmenere is a signature grape for Chile.  In the early days the Chileans often mistook the grape for Merlot.  DNA tests set them straight.  The grape, originally from Bordeaux has found a welcome home in Chile where, unlike in Bordeaux, it is produced as a single varietal.

 

Chile produces some of the best wine values in the world.

 

They are also gaining a good reputation for most of the internationally popular varietals.

 

 

Price is $20.  Please call or see the front desk to place reservations.  802 253-5742.  Doors open @ 4:00.  I suggest you arrive no later than 5:00 to avoid feeling rushed.  People come and go during the tasting which is an informal walk around format. We end at 6:00
