The Andes Wines-sponsored beer and wine festival ECHINUCO (Chilean Gathering of Our Cuisine) will see its third incarnation this October in Santiago’s Parque Bicentenario. Designed around wine and beer but meant to be a chance for Chilean products and cuisine to shine, the three-day festival will bring together various restaurants, chefs, wineries and beer producers.
Last year 23 different wineries were on hand for tastings and sales. This year, with more than 40 different wineries expected to show, an entire section of the festival will be devoted specifically to wine. Amidst the food and wine, there will be forums, classes, and other activities for the entire family. We’ll keep you posted with more information as the date gets closer, but for now, mark your calendars! [via Andes Wines]
