Home to the highest vineyards in the world, Argentina is about wines with attitude, and wines with altitude. Both reds and whites are produced, from multiple grape varieties, but Argentina is best known for the previously rather underappreciated Malbec. Unashamedly enjoyable, ripe, fruity wines are this country’s trademark, and increasingly fine wines are being produced as this star of South America matures as a giant of the viticultural world.

Chile is South America’s longest, narrowest country, and a haven for wine production. It benefits from a sunny climate and is shielded from many of the pests that plague producers elsewhere, being protected by the Andes, the Atacama Desert, and of course the Pacific Ocean. As a result, organic viticulture is widespread. The country has a reputation for well-made, reliable wines that come in at very attractive price points - but underestimate Chile at your peril. It is fast becoming a source for excellent quality wines that are often scandalously underpriced.

We are lucky enough to have Lee Evans of Condor Wines to take us through a range of six wines from these two fantastic countries. Condor is an independent specialist importer of South American wines – a company that Lee himself and his wife Maria (who comes from Argentina) started in 2011. We hope to see you at Turl Street for what promises to be an entertaining and informative tasting!
