WEBINAR: Wines of Chile: A Virtual Tasting Event
Webinar Event: "Beyond Our Borders: Spotlight Chile" series
Join the World Affairs Council of Philadelphia and its partners to experience the wines of Chile from the comfort of your own home. You will be guided by an expert through your virtual tasting and can engage and ask questions about the growing process, production of the wine, and of course… where you can find more to add to your at-home collections.
About the Event
With fertile valleys tucked between the Andes Mountains and the Pacific Ocean, Chile boasts three distinct regions that produce aromatic, complex, and balanced wines. Whether you prefer red or white, there is sure to be a Chilean wine that suits your palate and provides you with an unforgettable experience. Varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Pinot Noir, and Chardonnay are flagship wines of Chilean vineyards, but their flavors have subtle differences depending upon the climate the grapes grow in throughout the country.
We are featuring wines from Kingston Family Vineyards, and their founder, Courtney Kingston, will walk attendees through four of Kingston's wines during this virtual tasting.
Join the World Affairs Council of Philadelphia and its event partner, ProChile, and "Beyond Our Borders" series co-presenters, the Chilean & American Chamber of Commerce and the Honorary Consulate of Chile in Philadelphia, to experience the wines of Chile from the comfort of your own home. You will be guided by an expert through your virtual tasting and can engage and ask questions about the growing process, production of the wine, and of course… where you can find more to add to your at-home collections.
Registration for this event is extremely limited. If registering after April 28, you will be asked to arrange pickup of your package at the Council's office in Philadelphia.

About the "Beyond Our Borders" Series
This event is part of new programming for the World Affairs Council of Philadelphia, the “Beyond Our Borders” series. The Council is offering programming across its activities—speaker events, student programs, and travel (with the objective of hosting a tour in March 2022, due to COVID precautions)—to provide its members and the Greater Philadelphia community a deeper understanding of Chilean culture, politics, cuisine, and its role in the world at large.
The Council is focusing on Chile for the launch of this program series because of the robust and long-standing international relationship between the country and Philadelphia. In addition to our relationship, which supports thousands of jobs, there is a multi-year initiative to increase tech industry relationships and business development.
