Good to Know – Our News from Canada during November

Viña Errázuriz at La Grande Dégustation de Montréal

The 2016 edition of La Grande Dégustation de Montréal highlighted Chile as one of its inspiring themes for this year, which allowed visitors to learn about our country’s wine regions, grape novelties and featured wines. Wines featured to the trade and consumers included Aconcagua Costa range (Syrah, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir) and Don Maximiano 2013.


Terroir Seminar at La Grande Dégustation de Montréal

One of the most interesting Conferences was about Chilean Terroir, entitled “Une nouvelle frontière dans l’exploration du terroir au Chili” (A new Frontier in the Exploration of the terroir in Chile). It included the participation of the most experienced wineries on this topic, where Viña Errázurriz was represented by its President Eduardo Chadwick. Seminar was moderated by Nadia Fournier, journalist and co-author of Le Guide du Vin Phaneuf, one of the most relevant wine guides in Canada. On the occasion, Viña Errázuriz showcased the exceptional terroir of Don Maximiano Founder’s Reserve, 2013 vintage, from our Max vineyard blocks in Aconcagua Valley.
