Did you know that Vina Carmen is Chile’s oldest winery, founded in 1850 by Christian Lanz, who named the winery after his wife, Carmen? The Carmenere grape variety was rediscovered at Carmen in 1994. In 1997 Carmen launched the first Chilean organic wine under the Nativa brand. I remember buying the wine in WA state as it was not yet available here in Canada. Join me as Sebastian Labbe, Winemaker at Carmen winery talks about their Cabernet and Carmenere wines, as well as Chilean winemakers quest to find new terroirs in the Chilean landscape. Enjoy!
