Reinventing Chile

De Martino works with Malbec, and Marcelo is a fan of the grape and expounds on what it offers him and what Chilean Malbec is all about. Speaking of how things perform in Chile, Marcelo also offers a peek into the Chilean wine market, the options available to consumers in Chile, and how De Martino fits into the domestic market as they reinvent Chilean wine. One of the ways De Martino is reinventing Chilean wine is by helping to rescue some of the oldest vineyards in the country—parcels of Pais and Carignane, which until recently were used to produce inexpensive bulk wines. We end our talk with Marcelo talking of rescuing Chile's wine culture, a return to their roots, and the use of Amphora to produce Chile's first 16th century wine from the 21st century!


Mentioned in this article


  • I had the pleasure of visiting De Martino when in Chile last December. It was a fantastic experience both in terms of the winery's hospitality and in terms of the phenomenal wines they produce. What is even more remarkable is that De Martino produces such excellent wines without charging exorbitant prices.
