I feel happy as a chilean to see Viejas Tinajas praised on your blog. Mainly because I know it deserves so. Maybe it has earned a few more words considering how quixotesque this effort is in an overwhelmly industrial wine country like Chile.
Kudos on Marcelo Retamal, its winemaker, not only because of this lovable wine, but for his bravery and commitment on real wine.

PS: This TypePad thing is a real PITA, Alice.


Thanks Felipe, but would you do me a favor and tell me about the problems with TypePad?

Well, I took me a while to do something I used to do right away. But it's nothing, really.

I'm hunting the Leon Trotskys, the Philip Roths, the Chaucers and the Edith Whartons of the wine world. I want them natural and most of all, I want them to speak the truth even if we argue. With this messiah thing going on, I'm trying to swell the ranks of those who crave the differences in each vintage, celebrate nuance and desire wines that make them think, laugh, and feel. Welcome.
