Join us Thursday, September 24th at 6:30pm for a Zoom tasting of the wines of De Martino with owner Sebastian De Martino and importer Bartholomew Broadbent. Founded in 1934, the De Martino family has specialized, for four generations, in creating wines that are a faithful reflection of their origin, coming from selected parcels throughout Chile. Wines of great purity, with a sense of place and balance, are a consequence of sustainable agriculture and traditional fermentation techniques. The fourth-generation headed by Marco Antonio and Sebastián De Martino, along with their team, continue with their constant search for exciting terroirs while polishing their house style.
