April of 2010.- Between April 10th and the 15th, the Concours du Meilleur Sommelier du Monde Avec Moët & Chandon was held in Chile for the first time, and Viña San Pedro, of course, actively participated in this unique moment for the local wine-industry, probably the activity of greatest importance and largest impact to be carried out in Chile, aimed at restaurants and sommeliers.
San Pedro offered the delegations coming from the five continents and from the best restaurants in the world, a lunch at the W Santiago Hotel, where it delighted its guests with a journey through this country’s main valleys, presenting the latest vintages of its Premium and Reserve brands, 1865 Single Vineyard, 1865 Limited Edition and Castillo de Molina.
The lunch –which took place just some hours before the long-awaited Great Final, where the UK’s candidate, Gerard Basset, turned out to be the winner–, was attended by the 53 delegations accredited in the Concours Sommelier du Monde, formed by the Sommelier’s Associations’ Presidents, each region’s best Sommelier and also the most prestigious wine journalist of each country.
It was a unique occasion, without a doubt, since it included those who make Chilean wine buying decisions at the most distinguished international restaurants. A perfect instance to continue captivating the world with the excellence of San Pedro’s wines.
