Our trio of presenters at our Chilean Wine Tasting. From L – R, John Edwards, Laura Nielsen, and Jorge Liloy.

Cousiño-Macul – Founded in 1856, Cousiño-Macul is the only 19th century winery in Chile that remains in the hands of the original founding family. All Cousiño-Macul reserve wines are estate grown, vinted and bottled. After seven generations and over 150 years, Cousiño-Macul’s mission rings clear — to produce world-class wines that are unmistakably Chilean, carrying the distinctive character of the Maipo Valley.

Lapostolle – Casa Lapostolle is one of the most dynamic and influential producers of wines in Chile. Founded in 1994 in the Apalta Valley, this family business was created by the French Alexandra Marnier-Lapostolle and her husband Cyril de Bournet, members of the family who have been recognized for the production of wines and fine liqueurs for generations in the world.

TerraNoble – Founded in 1993, TerraNoble has consistently produced high-quality wines that are a rich expression of the unique terroir of Chile. Driven by a passion for viticulture and dedicated to producing top-rated wines from premier appellations, the wines of TerraNoble represent the ultimate in varietal expression. The philosophy of TerraNoble is to produce modern, high-quality wines with an incredible precision of style, elegant flavors, and aromas that exemplify the unique characteristics of each varietal.

Viña Tarapacá – Viña Tarapacá was founded in 1874, in the heart of the Maipo Valley. Our mission is to preserve the seal of high quality behind a wide range of wines focused on reds, today present in more than 60 countries worldwide.
