On Oc­to­ber 18, the Wines of Chile ( Vi­nos de Chile) hosted the “90 + Event” at The In­ter­con­ti­nen­tal Bei­jing San­l­i­tun Ho­tels & Re­sorts. It in­vited par­tic­i­pants from me­dia out­lets in Bei­jing, wine tasters, wine­mak­ers and win­ery own­ers from Chile. Dur­ing the event, 40 Chilean winer­ies se­lected a max­i­mum of their four best wines for tast­ing, all of which were awarded with 90 points or more in in­ter­na­tional wine com­pe­ti­tions. They come from Chile's three wine­mak­ing ar­eas.

Wine from Costa Ar­eas are char­ac­terised by its fresh and zesty acid­ity. Li­marí, an emerg­ing area, is known for pro­duc­ing the world- class Chardon­nay wine. En­tre Cordilleras Ar­eas are the first plant­ing home for wine in­tro­duced from Spain and ac­counts for 60 per­cent of the na­tion's wine pro­duc­tion. The no­table wine re­gions Ma­pio Val­ley and Maule Val­ley are famous for plant­ing red grape va­ri­eties. Grapes planted in An­des Ar­eas have a longer grow­ing sea­son due to the al­ti­tude and Maipo Alto is re­garded as a pre­mium site for pro­duc­ing one of Chile's best Caber­net Sau­vi­gnon wines.

At the 90+ Sym­po­sium, Fongyee Walker, Tim Atkin and Lü Yang, all three renowned wine ex­perts, gave speeches and shared their im­pres­sions about re­fined Chilean wine. At the 90+ Hall, guests com­mu­ni­cated with rep­re­sen­ta­tives, wine­mak­ers, traders, and own­ers of 40 winer­ies from Chile.

Chile is one of the old­est wine­mak­ing coun­tries with out­stand­ing peo­ple, pris­tine light and the purest air in its ter­roirs.

The cul­ture of wine has been grown and raised in this coun­try dur­ing the 16th cen­tury. As time goes by, Chilean wine has be­come a ma­jor player on an in­ter­na­tional stage as a new area for pro­duc­ing wine.
