Eduardo Brethauer is a journalist, writer and traveler. Author of the hilarious wine guide Vinos con Cuento. Owner and Wine Editor of Vitis Magazine. Member of the Circle of Wine Writers, La Commenda Major de Rosselló and Círculo de Cronistas Gastronómicos y de Vino de Chile. Founder of Vignadores de Carignan, a unique association of producers that reinvented a viticultural tradition of 5 centuries in Maule Valley. He doesn’t believe in scores. “They’re fuckin’ stupid”, claims. He and his brilliant collaborators are always seeking for character and identity. Their goal is to rescue and put in value wines, spirits and food treasures from forgotten corners of the world.
If there was the world championship of Porotos Granados, I would enroll in closed eyes. Chile is too small for me. The sweetness of the beans and the corn, and the aniseed tone of the basil from my terrace, simply arouse unspeakable desires. Watch the pot of terracotta so that the mazamorra (smashed corn) does not stick and, please, uncork a cheerful red like a Cinsault from Itata valley.
