We braved the Santiago traffic to visit one of the wineries with a super long history in Chile. De Martino in the Maipo Valley has the family generation story dating back to 1934 when the family moved from Italy. We really enjoyed the wine tasting with Sebastian De Martino and then held an interview in the library amongst the aging bottles of vino.
Sebastian was a great host and is clearly passionate about the family business which he is a big part of and also the challenge of making ever greater wine despite the odd challenge such as an earthquake.
The favourite wine for our list on this session was the Vigno Old Vines 2013.
