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.
Starring masterfully by Jeff Daniels (incredibly the same from Newsroom and Tonto and Retonto), The Looming Tower is like a documentary series that shows the prelude to the attack on the Twin Towers, revealing the big mistakes and ego struggles between the different agencies of American (des)intelligence. Yes, they knew almost everything in advance and could not avoid the disaster. It is a disturbing and revealing series.
Only with a wine that for many is a complete misunderstanding but it is not: A Pinotage.
