During their visit to Chile, the Keumyang team made a number of field trips to learn more about some of Concha y Toro’s most emblematic vineyards.

In Pirque, Pablo Pressac, Concha y Toro’s Wine Ambassador to the Asian zone, led the group in a tasting of wines from the Gran Reserva Serie Riberas and the Marques de Casa Concha lines. They also visited the Don Melchor Vineyard in Puente Alto, where they saw soil pits and tasted the 2014 vintage of Don Melchor with winemaker Isabel Mitarakis.

The Keumyang sales team also participated in the ‘Marques Night’ featuring the Marques de Casa Concha Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from the Limarí Valley as well as limited editions of both wines from the Biobío Valley and other varieties from the line.

Winemaker Marcio Ramírez received the group at the Peumo Valley in the Cachapoal Valley, where they were able to walk the vineyard, see the soil pits and differences in soils in the zone. Marcio then led them in a tasting of Carmenere from the Gran Reserva Serie Riberas, Marques de Casa Concha, and Terrunyo lines plus Carmín de Peumo.

The group also visited the winery, where they participated in the crush process and harvested a few sectors of the Peumo Vineyard.

The next day they went to Viña Concha y Toro’s Innovation Center to learn about the winery’s projects, visit the laboratory, and meet with winemaker Héctor Urzúa to taste the Marques de Casa Concha Merlot, the Gran Reserva Serie Riberas Syrah, and Vigno, three wines from the Maule Valley. During the tasting the winemaker also talked to the group about the valley’s topography, the influence of the rainfall in the zone, the different varieties that grow there, and the unique characteristics of each of the wines presented.
