Errázuriz vineyards take top three in the first Berlin Tasting of Dubai

On May 2nd, 2013, over 40 wine specialists congregated in the Armani Hotel to participate in the first ever Berlin Tasting to be held in Dubai.  It was a successful day in Chilean wine history: Seña, Don Maximiano and Viñedo Chadwick took six of the top ten winning spots. Furthermore, Seña was voted as the favorite wine, taking first in the entire competition.

The Berlin Tasting is an important wine event that is based off of Steven Spurrier’s Judgement of Paris, which was a blind tasting held in 1976 that helped to encourage the Californian wine market internationally. Viña Errázuriz President Eduardo Chadwick created his own version—now called the Berlin Tasting based on its first location—in 2004 with a blind tasting that stood Chilean wines against already well-established international vintages. It gained further respect for Errázuriz wines throughout the world, and rightly so; they have always placed in the top five positions of each tasting.

The results mark a powerful moment for Chile because it was a great opportunity for expanding the market to new palates in Dubai. The list of attendees to this year’s event included Chilean Ambassador to the UAE, Mr. Jean Paul Tarud, as well as Rodrigo Plass, Errázuriz‘s Commercial Director for Europe, Middle East & Africa.



Below are the top results of the tasting:

First Place: Seña 2010
