La Bottega is having a Wine Dinner on Thursday, June 14, featuring Sebastián Labbé (right) winemaker from Award-Winning Carmen Wine, pairing wines with a menu designed and executed by Chef Carmen Trigueros.
Founded in 1850, Carmen Wine was Chile’s first wine producer; landmarks in its history include the rediscovery of the Carmenère grape variety in its vineyards, an event in the study of wine that marked a turning point in the national and international wine industry and made Carmen the force behind Carmenére in Chile.
