De Martino, Chile on Tuesday 22nd of January

To celebrate our return to our monthly wine dinners we start with mountainous De Martino vineyard located in Maipo Valley.

Pietro De Martino Pascualone founded this estate in 1934, moving to Chile from his native Italy in search of a perfect place to make wine. He found an idyllic spot in the Maipo Valley, around 50km from Santiago, in between the Andes mountains and the Pacific ocean.

The property has grown tremendously since Don Pietro founded it so many years ago. It now has 300 organically managed hectares planted to vine and still maintains its sense of being a family winery. The third and fourth generations of the De Martino family now work in the winery every day. Today, more than 80 years after it began, the winery maintains its dynamism, family tradition, and the adventurous, pioneering spirit of the De Martino family.

What sets De Martino apart is the leadership of winemaker Marco Retamal and the increasing influence of the new generation, Marco and Sebastián de Martino, who have been bitten by the wine bug and are set to do interesting things in the future. Marcelo Retamal is a very talented winemaker and viticulturist and has a more challenging vision of how Chilean viticulture should develop than most.

A très bientôt!
