South America contributes some 10% of the world’s wine, yet for many it remains a relative mystery. This magical part of the southern hemisphere boasts a range of grapes, wine styles, interpretations, and breadth. Led by Master Sommelier Evan Goldstein, this seminar explores both the rich history and the modern innovation and renaissance of criolla classics shaping the contemporary identity of this diverse and seminal eno-titan.
