Almaviva Nite @ Capella
The Knoll @ Capella

I am pleased to present to you our event for the month of July 2009, brought to you by our Cellarmaster, Joyce Chang in conjunction with Crystal Wines. For this event, we will all get to experience and taste a vertical of the world renowned wine, the Almaviva.

Almaviva Nite @ Capella

In 1997, Baroness Philippine de Rothschild, Chairman of the Advisory Board of Baron Philippe de Rothschild SA, and Eduardo Guilisasti Tagle, Chairman of Viña Concha y Toro S.A., sealed a partnership agreement with a view to create an exceptional Franco-Chilean wine called Almaviva.

Almaviva, located in the Maipo Valley, produces approximately 15,000 cases a year of a consistently outstanding blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Carmenère from Puente Alto. Almaviva is the result of a joint venture between two wine stalwarts – Viña Concha y Toro in Chile and Baron Philippe de Rothschild of Bordeaux, France. Both founders were convinced that a world class wine could be made in Chile, so they acquired a vineyard called Puente Alto. Forty hectares of this over 20-year-old vineyard were reserved for the production of grapes to make Almaviva.

A felicitous encounter between two cultures - Chile offers its soil, its climate and its vineyards, while France contributes its winemaking savoir-faire and traditions; the result is an exceptionally elegant and complex wine. Considered a "Primer Orden" – the Spanish equivalent of the French "Premier Grand Cru Classé" or First Growth, Almaviva is the only non-Bordeaux wine to be handled by the famed French negotiants and marketed by them alongside grand châteaux wine.

For this event, we will be enjoying the vertical vintage years of 2000, 2001, 2002, 2004, 2005 & 2006 of the Almaviva. Join us for a special evening with Mr Diego Garay, Commercial Director of Almaviva as he leads us through these 6 vintages.
