    We are planning a trip to Chile. Researching ideas for places to visit and wines to sip. Thanks for the suggestions!

    Chile is such a beautiful country – I was there a few years ago. One of your interviewees mentioned about how long the country is. Fact is it’s almost half the length of South America’s west coast! So yes, there are a multitude of climates with which to grow (or attempt to grow) vineyards.

    I liked Andrea’s (I think that was her name) answer to your question about which wine she has the most affinity to growing – and her answer was, “that’s like asking me which child I like the best!” LOL

    Andrea embodies everything I want to see and hear from a winemaker. She is truly magical.

    Good piece, Andrea does come across well. I agree she’s an excellent winemaker. She also makes a magical wife!

    It’s fascinating reading your article and the subsequent comments – our own family have been in the wine-making business for generations (although I personally steered away into the marine diesel business, just to be the odd one out *haha*).

    Talking about Chile: My brother owns a large vineyard in the Barossa Valley in South Australia. Instead of employing local growers and consultants (of which their are no shortage), he sponsored a group of Chileans from Valle de Maipo to come out and walk for him, simply because (as he said) “Their ‘real back to basics’ approach to wine-making makes many of the more sophisticated wine-making operations look second-rate as far as the end product is concerned.

    Not trying to be ‘off-topic’ with my comment, but just thought you’d find it interesting all the same.

    Andrew, I find it interesting that it is not uncommon to find winemakers working outside of Chile but have spent an “internship” in Chile.
