Garcés Silva Vineyard Tasting Supper

Last night we had another amazing wine supper, this one hosted by Matias Garcés Silva from Garcés Silva Vineyards (one of the family members who started this vineyard).

The first vineyards were planted in 1999, and three years later construction was finished on a winery equipped with the latest technology – an unprecedented event in the Leyda Valley. Finally, in 2003 the family made their first wine: Amayna. The Garcés-Silva family and its Amayna wines have earned worldwide recognition over the years and have demonstrated their passion for high quality and innovative wine production. http://www.vgs.cl

We chose the wines and then we created a menu to match the fantastic wines. We tasted three wines from the Boya range (Boya being the Spanish for buoy – a salute to the wine’s oceanic origins) and two wines from the Amayna range (“amayna” in Chile loosely translates to “the calm after the storm”).

The winners of the evening, apart from Matias of course, were the Amayna Barrel Fermented Sauvignon (Chilean Sauvignon Blanc but not as you know it!) & the Amayna Syrah, both were huge crowd pleasers.
