The Best Wines of South America or "La Crema de la Crema" at the Vancouver International Wine Festival 2023
La Cream de la Crema was the final seminar of the Vancouver International Wine Festival Saturday evening from 5:15 pm to 6:45 pm. It featured a 10 member panel and two fabulous moderators demonstrating that power and profile of wines from South America. This show stopper was not only tasty but funny and familial as these vignerons brought favorite topics to the room including football, empanadas and "dulce de leche". Summed up, it was fantastically insightful and of an unanticipated calibre. South America is producing world class wine at a fraction of the price. See the wines tasted below.
The Best of the Best of South America
The best of the best showcased South America wine like never before. The event kicked off
Saturday April 29th at 5:15 pm. Hometown host Anthony Gismondi and South American wine expert Evan Goldstein MS (@evangoldsteinems) lead the discussion traveling from Chile, Argentina to Uruguay and Brazil.
The panel was complete with winemakers, brand ambassadors and business leaders who provided insights and experiences from a fine wine perspective in stark contrast to $10 wine that has become synonymous with this region over the past decade. In fact, there is a definite wow factor here and tasting along with panel and moderators proved it.
The conversation got off on the dulce de leche foot and despite the popularity of football and empanadas, passions flared. It seems that Uruguay's dulce de leche is the best. Some might argue this.
