Acclaimed Chilean winemaker Pedro Parra will join us on our mezzanine Wednesday, October 11 at 6pm to discuss his remarkable Itata wines and his amazing wine background. Parra has a truly global perspective, educated in France and honed while working with top producers in both hemispheres before he brought his considerable talent back home. This is your chance to discover the "New Chile": terroir-driven, soulful and diverse.
Born in Concepción, Chile, near Bio Bio and Itata, Pedro holds a PhD in terroir from the Paris Center of Agriculture, with six years’ experience in French terroirs. As a highly respected consultant working in several countries and terroirs (Chile, Argentina, USA, Italy, Canada, France, Armenia), Pedro brings an open mind and vision to winemakers and viticulturists alike. Pedro has been described as the leading figure of the “New Chile” movement by the international press, in part because of his constant endeavor to bring a new vision to the Chilean wine industry, searching for quality terroirs and developing new plantings throughout the country. As a consultant, Pedro’s has work with many wineries, that includes Comando G, Jean-Marc Roulot, Marco Marengo, Liger Belair, Altos las Hormigas, Chapter 24, and Zuccardi.
Seating is very limited. The cost of this seminar is $30 and a $20 credit at the store will be extended to each guest for a future purchase. We hope you can join us Wednesday, October 11 at 6pm on our mezzanine for this very special event.
