Talking with Miguel Torres Maczassek at the Vancouver Playhouse Intl Wine Festival

Miguel Torres is best known as a wine making family with long pedigree from Spain.  From Spain they have spread out around the world.  One place where they have taken root has been Chile; the Curico Valley to be precise.  Their winery is very well known for their high quality Cordillera red blend. But when I was at the Vancouver Playhouse International Wine Festival tasting room, I found out that they also have a Cordillera Chardonnay, which is also very nice, and was one of my Festival purchases. I was fortunate to speak with Mr. Miguel Torres Maczassek the Executive President of their Chilean winery.  He told me a little of their history of wine making in Chile, their push for sustainable wines, and also producing Fair Trade certified wines.  Listen to Miguel in my YouTube video.  Enjoy!

Drink Good Wine. That is my motto and I really want to help you drink good wine. What is good wine? That can be a different thing for each people. Some people prefer red wines. Some only like Cabernet Sauvignon. MyWinePal was started by Karl Kliparchuk, WSET. I spent many years with the South World Wine Society as the President and then cellar master.

Come live vicariously through me, and enjoy all my recommended wines.
