If you’re in the GTA, the Royal Ontario Museum is not just an educational visit; it’s host to numerous events throughout the year such as charitable galas or its infamous Friday Night Live. Most recently, the ROM hosted the Chilean Wine and Food Festival.
At a cost of $75 a ticket, with proceeds going to a local charity, guests had the choice to sample wines and Chilean cuisine. Over 20 wineries took part with approximately 120 wines available for tasting (many in Canada for the first time!)
Participating wineries included: Calcu, Carmen, Cousiño Macul, Concha y Toro, Emiliana, Errazuriz, Maquis, MontGras, Morandé, Pérez Cruz, San Esteban, San Pedro, Siegel, Ventisquero, VIA, Villaseñor, Volcanes de Chile, Santa Rita, Santa Carolina.
Chile’s geography and climate combine to make favourable conditions for winegrowing. It has the Atacama Desert in the north, the Andes Mountains in the east, the Patagonian ice fields to the south, and the Pacific Ocean to the west.
I’m no wine connoisseur, so if you would like to learn more check out Wines of Chile!
