Foods From Chile Goodie Bag + Wines to taste too!

chilegoodiesWhile I am not packing my bags and brushing up my Spanish for my trip to Chile (at least not this time!), I was excited to open my box of goodies from the Foods from Chile folks.

Enclosed, packed in a Foods From Chile muslin bag, I found these products made from Chilean foods: a bottle of 100% pure blueberry juice, a jar of onion jam in merlot wine, a bottle of extra virgin olive oil, and a can of mussels in oil.

That same day I also received three bottles of Malbec for Malbec Madness April 17–two from Argentina, and this 2011 Casillero del Diablo from Concha y Toro in Chile!

In addition, I’m looking forward to tasting two more wines from Chile that are on their way: new releases from  Viña Ventisquero, a leading producer of estate and single vineyard wines–Queulat Sauvignon Blanc and Queulat Pinot Noir.

Queulat Single Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc 2012

Varietal:                 100% Sauvignon Blanc

Appellation:          Leyda Valley

SRP:                        $17.99

Queulat Single Vineyard Pinot Noir 2010

Varietal:                 100% Pinot Noir

Appellation:          Casablanca Valley

SRP:                        $17.99

And I still have a bottle of Lapostolle Cabernet that I bought last month to use to make the video I submitted as a finalist in the Foods from Chile contest…

So if you, like me, can’t go to Chile, we can at least enjoy Foods (and wines!) from Chile like these!
