Come join St.C's parishioner and wine expert Alex Murray for a tasting tour of South America's finest! Although most of the world's most famous wine regions are located in Europe, did you know that some of the most favorable grape growing conditions on the planet exist in Chile and Argentina? Child benefits from the same cool, coastal breezes and plentiful sunshine as California, and this allows Chilean growers to slowly ripen their grapes so that they develop rich, ripe flavors. In Argentina, the cool conditions are due to the best vineyards being located high up in the Andes Mountains, and the result is intense, full-flavored wines. Though these two countries produce wines from well-known grape varieties, such as Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon, they also produce stunning wines from grapes that are less well-known, at least outside of these two countries, such as Marmenere and Malbec.
