Eric Miller, founding proprietor of Chaddsford Winery, recommends wines from the following wineries, which should be available locally:

 

 

 

 

Argentine wineries

  • Catena Zapata. “Probably one of the main reasons Argentine wines are getting chic.” Try the 2008 Alta Malbec and the 2007 Nicolás Catena Zapata, a Malbec blend.
  • Clos de los Siete. “Really good and well-priced wines.” Recommended Cabernet blends include the 2009 Clos de los Siete, 2008 DiamAndes de Uco and 2008 Chevalier de los Andes. 
  • Familia Zuccardi. This winery’s “impeccable wines” include the 2008 Q Cabernet Sauvignon and the Malamado Malbec, “an extraordinary dessert wine.”
  • Trapiche. Higher end Malbecs like the 2008 Viña Jorge Miralles and the 2008 Viña Christina y Biliana Coletto are “thrilling.”

Chilean wineries

  • J. Bouchon. “A winery to watch.” Check out its 2010 Carménère or a value Malbec blend like the 2008 Las Mercedes Ensamblaje.
  • François Lurton. This winery exports from both Argentina and Chile.  “A forward-thinking winery in transition to organic vineyards.”
  • Viu Manent. This winery in Colchagua has a new line of wines called Secreto. “Their Sauvignon Blanc was one of the best I had in Chile.”
