Discover Killer Cabernet from Chile

The Powerhouse traveling sip and learn event "Wine Riot" has come home to its roots in Boston and opened their own store in the South End!

Chile is a Cabernet Sauvignon powerhouse. It's the second-largest Cabernet producing region in the world, surpassing the entire United States and nipping at France's heels. This makes sense because the climate in Chile is perfect for growing Cabernet grapes. The vineyards here get snow melt from the Andes Mountains on one side, cool air from the Pacific Ocean on the other, and plenty of sunshine to boot. This allows the grapes to ripen to perfection and make Cabernet that rivals California in quality. But since South America's winemaking reputation is not nearly as prestigious, you'll snag these wines for a fraction of the price. Taste for yourself with this weekend's Passport Wine, the Caliterra Reserva Cabernet. It's rich, bold, and tastes like a Cab that costs twice the price. Sip it solo, or pair it with all of the grilled meat, Chilean style. Go see them at Wine Riot South End (519 Tremont Street) for this wine and a few more outstanding bottles for the weekend.

They are stocking all of these wines at the listed prices for at least the next week. Stop by Wine Riot South End and pick up a few for the weekend!
