In what has become a tradition, the Casablanca Valley presented to the media, the wine and gastronomic sector its new vintages of Pinot Noir. The guests enjoyed the novelties of the 12 vineyards that belong to the world capital of Chilean wine.
On Thursday, October 20, 2016, at the Cumbres Kennedy Hotel in Santiago with a welcoming reception, the Viticultural Association of the Casablanca Valley celebrated 11 years of this iconic night where the vineyards show their new vintages of Pinot Noir.
On this occasion 12 vineyards were presented: Kingston Family Vineyards, Cono Sur, Viña Casablanca, Viña Indómita, Viña Mar, Viña Casas del Bosque, Viña Ventisquero, Veramonte, Viña Loma Larga, Estancia El Cuadro, Vineyard Quintay and Viña Emiliana. These vineyards shared with guests their new Pinot Noirs. The guests had the chance to taste a 100% Pinot Noir sparkling wine D.O Casablanca of Viñamar for the third year in a row.
Just like in last year, journalists and wine lovers shared with the winemakers of each vineyard in a close and intimate format, where they could share experiences and discuss in detail the characteristics and development of wines of the event.
Mario Agliati, president of the Viticultural Association of Casablanca Valley thanked the guests, the vineyards and ambassadors from several countries in Chile for their interest in the eleventh anniversary of the Pinot Noir Night; on this occasion he highlighted the positive evolution of this grape variety in the Casablanca Valley through the years; also he emphasized that "the best ambassador that Chile has is wine."
The Casablanca Valley is world-renowned for the high quality of its wines and the special influence its climate has due to its proximity to the Pacific Ocean, features that have allowed it to become one of the most important cold weather valleys of Chile. In 2013 the Casablanca Valley was appointed one of the Great Wine Capitals, and it will host the annual meeting in November 2017.
