International Malbec Day is celebrated in April, and the Viu Manent family winery in Colchagua and the Chilean National Sommelier Association will host an unforgettable 2017 Malbec Night, where the hosts are their broad range of Malbec wines in harmony with a gastronomic experience at the Renaissance Santiago Hotel.
- Viu Manent was the first winery to produce a Malbec wine in Chile in 1993.
- The 23rd anniversary of Chilean pioneers of this variety, within the frame of the International Malbec Day, Viu Manent once again pays tribute with a magical evening inspired by the variety on April 27 at 7:30 pm on the Renaissance Santiago Hotel’ Terraza Olas.
Malbec is a versatile red variety with intense red color and pronounces violet and blue nuances, aromas of berries, and smooth, round tannins. It was originally from Cahors in southwest France, where it is called Côt. The variety was first planted in South America in Chile in the 19th century. In 1993, Viu Manent was the first Chilean winery to bottle and market its 100% Malbec wine domestically and internationally.
Viña Viu Manent, with century-old vineyards in the Colchagua Valley and known for its excellence and innovation, has a broad portfolio of wines including eight based on Malbec, topped by its icon wine Viu 1, a tribute to the winery’s founder, Don Miguel Viu Manent.
With updated staging, the 2017 Malbec Night promises to be full of surprises and this year will include the special participation of the Chilean National Sommelier Association.
The grand event will take place on Thursday, April 27 at the Terraza Olas in the Renaissance Santiago Hotel. The cost is CLP$30,000 per person for the general public, and $24,000 (20% discount) for members of the Viu Manent Club.
Seating is limited.
