flagship Icon wine made in honour of the man who founded the pioneer winery in the Aconcagua Valley.He also enclosed the latest edition of the book “The Berlin Tasting, Uncorking the Potential of Chile’s Terroir,” which tells the story of the Chadwick-Errázuriz family and their quest to establish Chile’s place among the world’s greatest wine appellations.

President Park expressed her gratitude to Mr. Chadwick and said that Koreans feel an especially close affinity with Chile because it was the first South American country to recognize the government of the Republic of Korea and became Korea’s first FTA partner in 2004.
