VINA AQUITANIA

Aquitania (pronounced Ak-A-tania) is a joint venture which brings France and Chile together. The story starts in 1984 when Bruno Prats (of Chateau Cos d’Estournel fame) and the late Paul Pontaillier (Chateau Margaux) started looking for top terroir in the historic centre of Chile. They had a mutual friend, Felipe de Solminihac, a Chilean winemaker of French origin, who lead them to the site they own today. The vineyard Quebrada de Macul, is located right in the heart of the Maipo Valley. Felipe knew of the site, travelling past it every day on his way to the winery he worked at then. All that time, understanding that this was the very best part of the region. The vines planted, of Bordeaux origin, the winery finished in 1993. Here you find French inspired winemaking with old vines in the heart of the Maipo valley. They are so much in the centre that the city of Santiago has come up to them and surrounded them. Exceptional wines, much more restrained that the stereo type style from the region suggests. In 2002, a fourth partner joined the founders, a longtime friend of all, Ghislain de Montgolfier hails from Champagne. On the label of the wines, you’ll find signatures of all four.

TASTINGS & EVENTS YOU MIGHT LIKE

SHADES OF ROSE | EUROPE, SOUTH AMERICA, AND AUSTRALIA

To think, 10 years ago, the word 'rose' in New Zealand meant nothing more than a beautiful flower. Fast forward to 2019 and now it’s as much a 'go to' wine style as any Marlborough Sauvignon, and what’s not to love? The only problem with rose is where to start! We thought, why not run a tasting series that's all about rose? So that's just what we've done. Four nights of five star rose tasting.

Night one, we zoom around Southern France and compare the three appellations of Languedoc, Southern Rhone, and Provence. Night two, we explore roses from Europe, Australia and South America. Night three, we taste roses from New Zealand's 2019 vintage. For our fourth and final night, we focus on methode traditional rose and of course Champagne.
