Maule – slow recuperation


Derek Mossman Knapp of The Garage Wine Co in Chile was the winner of the 2010 Geoffrey Roberts Award. He told us he wanted to spend his £3,000/$4,500  travel grant researching the best of the old vines in Chile's long-overlooked Maule region (particularly hard hit by the 2010 earthquake) and in particular trying to recuperate old Carignan and encouraging its growers to re-evaluate it and their own potentially important place in the Chilean wine scene. His first wine, Garage Old Vine Dry Farmed Carignan 2010 Maule, is reviewed in Americans abroad. The following is his report.
