This week, SOHO travels to Chile for flight night on Wednesday, November 11.

Grapes on vine 

The Chilean varietals showcased this week come from the Maipo and Colchagua valleys. The Colchagua Valley gained world-wide recognition in 2005, when Wine Enthusiast magazine named it Wine Valley of the Year. The region is known for producing juicy reds such as Syrah and Carmenere – some wine enthusiasts have even nicknamed it the Napa of Chile. SOHO will offer the following Chilean wines and South American-inspired tapas through November 18.

2008 Santa Ema Amplus Sauvignon Blanc, Maipo, Chile

Ceviche de Camarones – a fresh shrimp ceviche served with Chilean avocados

 

2006 Casa Silva Carmenere Reserve, Colchagua Valley, Chile

Ostiones a la Parmesana – oysters baked with Argentine parmesan

 

2005 Montes Alpha Syrah, Colchagua Valley, Chile

Anticucho con aji pebre – grilled Chilean beef shish-kabob with green hot chili sauce

 

Guests can try all the Chilean wines in a flight (three three ounce glasses and a cheese plate) for $18. Or, pair a glass of wine and tapas for $12. The wine and tapas are available individually as well ($9/glass and $6/tapas). See you soon!
