VLC attends NOWFE and wins Gold!

Viña Los Chanchitos, a family-owned organic winery from Chile, had an epic win at the New Orleans Wine and Food Experience (NOWFE) in June 2023 [1: https://vlcwines.com/]. In their first ever entry into an international wine competition, their GSMc Red Blend 2021 won a gold medal [4: https://www.nowfe.com/wine-competition].

The GSMc Red Blend is a blend of Grenache, Shiraz, and Mourvèdre grapes. It is aged for 12 months in French oak barrels, which gives it a rich and complex flavor profile. The wine is described as having notes of blackberry, plum, and spice, with a smooth finish.

The NOWFE is a premier event in the New Orleans culinary scene, showcasing the city’s best food and wine. The wine competition is particularly prestigious, with judges from all over the world. Viña Los Chanchitos’ gold medal win is a testament to the quality of their wines and their commitment to sustainable winemaking.
