MARCELO PAPA MEETS WITH INFLUENTIAL ASIAN WINE WRITER
Tomoko Ebisawa, editor of Vinotheque Magazine, visited the Limarí Valley and tasted some wines from the Marques de Casa Concha portfolio with the line’s winemaker.
One of Japan’s leading wine writers and editor of the magazine Vinotheque, the Japanese wine industry’s longest running and most influential publication, was in Chile April 18–21 to meet with winemaker Marcelo Papa.
During her visit, Ebisawa took a trip to the Limarí Valley to meet with winemaker Javier Villarroel, tour the Concha y Toro vineyards in the area, and learn more about the how the qualities of the Quebrada Seca Vineyard influence the development of the Chardonnay grown there.
Back in Santiago, the journalist met with Marcelo Papa in Pirque for a tasting of Marques de Casa Concha—the 2014 Chardonnay and the 2014 Pinot Noir, both from the Limarí Valley. At the tasting, Ebisawa praised the minerality and elegance of these wines. She also had the opportunity to taste the 2015 Marques de Casa Concha País Cinsault and the 2014 vintage of Vigno, allowing her to learn more about the winery’s more recent projects in the Maule Valley.
