Pablo Neruda, a contemporary famous poet in Chile, once said, “I am fascinated of meal together, the way we are talking; while, the elegant and intelligent wine, being there silently”.
On 29th October 2019, the 90+ Event held by Wines of Chile will take place at Guangzhou Conrad Hotel.
智利犹如上帝不经意间打翻的调料盘，绚丽的色彩晕染了整片狭长的土地。那里的天空天高且云淡，一眼望去天空如碧洗般澄澈。这里坐落着地球上70% 的天文中心，站在这片土地仰望遥远的星空是一生中非常值得去尝试的一件事情。因海岸线长达4300 公里而被称为“丝绸之国”的智利于1548 年开始种植葡萄藤，是新世界中最古老的葡萄酒生产国之一。本次活动将展现其多样化的风土与地域风情酿造出的风格迥异且优质纯正的智利葡萄酒。
Chile is an excellent country with the cleanest skies and is home for 70% of the astronomical centres of the planet. Observing the stars from the farthest land is an experience that you must have during your lifetime. Often being called Silk country, Chile has a coastal line measuring 4300 km. Chile is one of the oldest wine producing countries of the new world, with vines first planted in 1548.

The third edition of 90+ will take place in Guangzhou & Chengdu. We have a good number of our best wineries that will bring their best wines, of whom are all above 90+ points internationally. These selections come from three areas in Chile and are grown and produced by the high quality grape under the starry nights of Chile:
海岸区域 | Costa Areas
The most reputable Costa region is Casablanca Valley. Limarí, the emerging Costa region, produces some world-class Chardonnay thanks to the limestone soil. Cool climate grapes are planted here giving refreshing characteristics, zesty acidity and elegance.
山脉之间区域 | Entre Cordilleras Areas
Entre Cordilleras is the first home of vines brought by the Spanish, today representing 60% of the nation’s wine production. Notable wine regions in the Entre Cordilleras are Central Valley, in particular Maipo Valley and Maule Valley. Grape varieties planted in these areas are mostly red.
安第斯区域 | Andes Areas
Notable wine regions include Central Valley, particularly at the foot of the Andes. Grape growers take advantage of the climatic influences to achieve a longer growing season due to altitude and the cooling influence of the Andes. Maipo Alto is regarded as a premium site for growing one of Chile’s best Cabernet Saucignon wines.
