Hello Snooth!

Posted by winetastesveryfine, Aug 24.

Glad to be on the forum! I am a wine lover now living in Lima, Peru. Looking forward to expand my knowledge and learn as much as possible in here :)

We're very pleased to have you join, WTVF.  Why don't you tell us a bit more about yourself.

And did you feel that earthquake yesterday, the one that was a 6.9?  It was a bit south of you.  We thought California had it bad....

'The 6.9-magnitude earthquake hit a mountainous area 43 kilometers (27 miles) east-northeast of Tambo at a depth of 101 kilometers (63 miles), according to the U.S. Geological Survey.'

California has it good. Earthquakes are our way of keeping the tourist traffic in check.

I like your moniker.  I was told as a young man that wine improves with age.  Now that I am 75, I assure you it tastes better than ever.

As I understand it, the original "Americans" crossed the ice bridge from Asia and then raced down to Peru, only to fill in the gap left behind much later.  I do believe that research, given the quality, character, resilience, physiognomy, history and genetics of the Peruvian people.  I congratulate you on enduring despite the odds of church, state, medicine, and so-called modernity.  But what I want to know is how's your wine, especially your whites and roses, which are the real tests of viticulture?

Yep. Once those septic tanks shake loose, just call it a "mud slide".

@emark: So I currently study business in college, taking a little course on wine tasting which gives me extra credits haha

I am lately loving Chilean wine, especially Cabernet Sauvignon by Concha y Toro. And also like Malbec Argentinian wine. Lucky to have those South American wines easily here in Peru

@Really Big Al: thankfully earthquake epicenter was kind of far from Lima, so it was a shaky fun movement for us :)

@Yossel: Thank you sir! I also find that theory of Peruvian people very plausible. Here in Peru, vineyards are used for both wine and pisco. Pisco is made from different varieties of grape, like Quebranta. Wine here competes strongly with Chilean wine, I think both excel at producing Cabernet Sauvignon. I am still kind of new to this and learning more about it though.
