This wine seminar complements the exhibition Intersecting Modernities: Latin American Art from The Brillembourg Capriles Collection. Begin with a curatorial briefing focused on Chilean artists, followed by an engaging tour of six Chilean wines. ¡Salud!
Chile is the world's ninth-largest wine producer and accounts for the fourth-largest number of wine imports to the United States (after France, Italy, and Australia). Chile’s distinct geography—a narrow strip of land along South America’s coast, with numerous valleys—allows for 14 principal growing regions. The most-planted region is Valle de Maipo, the least is Valle de Malleco, and the most celebrated of Chilean wines come from Valle de Maule. In answer to Argentina’s Malbec, Chile has the Carménère, a grape originally from France’s famed Bordeaux region, now rarely found in France.
To allow plenty of time for parking and to accommodate late arrivals, doors open five minutes early, but the program does not begin until 6:10 p.m. Contact email@example.com for more information.
About the Speaker
Some wines may be dry, but James King of the Texas Wine School is not. As Ron Saikowski of Greater Houston Weekly describes him, “This articulate Brit makes wine fun, the way it needs to be without the pomp and complexities that turn people off.”
