with Winemaker Martin Foerster/Viña Casa Donoso
Wednesday, June 26, 2013 – 6:30 pm
Winemaker Martin Foerster co-hosts this event as we taste the outstanding red wines from Viña Casa Donoso located in the Maule Valley of Chile. Viña Casa Donoso made its way into the market at a time when the Chilean winemaking industry was becoming more sophisticated. In 1989, a group of foreign investors, captivated by the beauty and the potential of the environment, bought Fundo La Oriental, an historic domaine in the very heart of Maule Valley.
