The embassies of Chile and Argentina, in association with Harbour Wines and Spirits, hosted an exclusive dinner with Patricia Guzman Rosales, winemaker and global ambassador of Concha y Toro Winery at the official residence of the Chilean Ambassador Francisco J Bernales, on Monday.

Specially invited guests included Ambassador of Argentina, Ariel Fernandez, executives, and members of the media. The delectable dishes were paired with featured Concha y Toro wines Vina Maipo Vitral Sauvignon Blanc, Trivento Reserve Chardonnay, Trivento Golden Reserve Malbec, Vina Maipo Limited Edition Syrah, Trivento Golden Reserve Cabernet Franc and Vina Maipo Protegido Cabernet Sauvignon.

Concha y Toro is one of the world's three leading wine producers and South America's single largest exporter of fine wines. It is one of the labels carried by the GraceKennedy-owned Harbour Wines and Spirits, which was launched in February 2016. Since then, customers have been able to experience a wide variety of tastes to suit every palate and pocket from the wine regions of countries such as Argentina and Chile.

Guzmán, who is currently responsible for communications and promotions related to the company’s fine wines around the region, used her vast experience and knowledge of the production and sale of wines around the world to showcase the featured wines for the evening. “I love the mystery of wine, because wine is humble. It’s special. In get-togethers, it starts out as the center of attention, where everyone talks about it, and then becomes a mere observer, watching people interact among themselves. That’s what I really love, to see the joy caused by sharing wine and spending time with others,” she said.

Guests were treated to a sumptuous six-course meal prepared by chef Mark Cole of the Culinary Federation of Jamaica and team, including chef Patrice Hussey Malcolm, Junior Chef of the Year Stephaun Farquarson, and noted executive pastry chef Lincoln Peterkin.
