with Chef Ruth Van Waerebeek and Concha y Toro
Escape to Chile for the evening and savor Chile’s diverse reds! Join Concha y Toro, Chile’s leading winery, and chef Ruth Van Waerebeek, corporate chef and Chile’s premier culinary ambassador, for a spectacular tasting that showcases the diversity of Chilean reds. Chef Van Waerebeek owns and runs Mapuyampay Hostal Gastronomico & Cooking School in the heart of Chile’s wine region, near Curico. Chef Ruth also held a management position at ICE when it was still known as Peter Kump’s New York Cooking School. Chile, a long sliver of land spanning 3,000 miles from the Atacama Desert to Antarctica, is home to many different terroirs, each suited to different grape varieties.
Chef Ruth will taste you through a succession of wine flights and along the way will introduce you to some of Chile’s best-known reds, plus several exciting newcomers. You can look forward to discovering Chilean Cabernet, a quality statement from Chile, and Carmenere, Chile’s national grape, both from the foothills of the Andres in Chile’s Central Valley. You will also experience elegant Pinot Noir from the country’s cool, mineral-rich coastal vineyards. While the wines differ in character, one thing’s for sure: Chile produces sensational wines with a wonderfully distinctive sense of place. Free for current career students and alumni; general public, $40.
