well, as there doesn't seem as if there was a wine culture before the white folk brought grapes to SA in the 1500s, I'm not sure this is the story. But there is a racist element when talking about païs vs. cabernet.

There's a lot to despise Pinochet for, but ( 'cept for the pines and eucalyptus, decreased acreage) much of the wine damage was post-Pinochet. Wine history was rewritten by the big companies and technology. And that message is still accepted as truth.

Depressing line up of wines. Everything market driven, nothing to express but a grape. Going made me very sad about the kosher wines available.

It was that other great politician, Winston Churchill, who said: "never trust a man who doesn't drink." For those of you looking for someone to trust....

The more I write about Chile, the more I'm appalled. If you believe what you read you'd think there was no wine culture until after Pinochet and the vines were saved by the Europeans.

In other words it was a pandering experiment. Disappointing.

Susan Collins insisted that Kavanaugh would never overturn Roe V. Wade, which he just tried to do. Susan Collins will say and do anything to appease bigots. A "Susan Collins" is a cocktail made from gin, cowardice and self-justification
