Hand Picked Jewels from South America This Weekend! Friday 4:30 to 6:30 & Saturday 2 to 6 PM Around the time of the first Thanksgiving celebration at the Plymouth Colony in 1621, workers were already harvesting grapes in the vineyards of Chile and Argentina; in fact they had been doing so for almost 75 years. In both countries, Spanish missionaries had brought vines over from Europe in the 1500s; the first professionally farmed vineyard in Chile was established in 1554. Nevertheless, South American wines didn't have a major presence in wine shops in the United States until the early 1990s.

quickly became known for delicious wines at very affordable prices. Lately, it has been Argentina's turn: Measured in dollars, Argentinean wine imports to the U.S. rose 31 percent from the first six months of 2006 to the first six months of 2007. Both countries have their specialties. From Chile, look for crisp, citrusy Sauvignon Blanc from the Casablanca and San Antonio valleys, both located close to the Pacific Ocean, and reds made from CarmenĂ¨re, a distinctively spicy French grape abundant in Chilean vineyards. In Argentina, the Salta province is known for TorrontĂŠs, a native grape variety with a distinctive, floral aroma that makes some of the country's most interesting whites. But Malbec from Mendoza is unquestionably the country's marquee variety; its rich blueberry and blackberry flavors, light smokiness and soft tannins lead to immensely appealing red wines. Come by and try several of these varietals this weekend. If we run out of one brand, which we will, we will replace it with another to taste. These wines are going to surprise you! Ah! Kisses Sweeter Than Wine!
