We look forward to sharing rare cellar selections and current vintages, including the 30th Anniversary release – 2017 Don Melchor.
Space is very limited. By invitation only.
About Don Melchor
Don Melchor is a legacy wine from Chile, first created in 1987 by the Guilisasti family of Concha y Toro, and named for their forefather in Chilean wine. A Cabernet Sauvignon of refinement and elegant character, Don Melchor represents a singular expression of the Puente Alto Vineyard in the upper Maipo Valley, overseen by winemaker Enrique Tirado since 1995. The 7 parcels of Don Melchor are harvested independently to support over 150 micro-vinifications in the cellar, each then tasted and selected for the final composition. Don Melchor was the first wine to showcase Chile’s profound potential for quality, with an unparalleled record as a collector’s Cabernet Sauvignon. The second vintage of Don Melchor (1988) was the first Chilean wine to be named to Wine Spectator’s Top 100 Wines of the World, where it has since placed nine times, including three placements in the Top 10. Currently in its 30th vintage release, Don Melchor 2017 will retail for a suggested $120 per 750-ml bottle as of October 2019.
Date: October 9th, 2019, from 7 pm to 8.30pm.
