#LoveWineLoveChile! Matches Speed Dating with Wine Tasting.

New York City, NY February 3rd, 2017: It’s winter once again: those dark months between the December holidays and the start of spring when singles search for the perfect match with whom to spend the long, cold months. This year as the temperature drops, Wines of Chile is turning up the heat with the national roll-out of a partnership with Match.com and Total Wine & More. Following the success of a pilot program in 2016, this program kicks off nationwide, pairing wine tasting with speed dating over an exhilarating series of 13 dates in seven cities in February. It’s a time to explore new flavors and personalities. It’s a meeting of minds over glasses of wine.

Hosted at Total Wine & More stores, attendees enjoy an introduction to Chilean wine and sample nine premium wines that showcase the vast diversity of Chile’s terroirs, paired with artisanal cheese and charcuterie. Each tasting is followed by interactive speed dating in small groups at dedicated wine stations. Guests spend time afterward chatting with those who caught their eyes, revisiting wines they loved, and browsing the aisles for new wine finds. Where applicable, exclusive discounts on purchases will be available.

“Our new tagline, ‘Love Wine, Love Chile!’ inspired the idea,” said Marybeth Bentwood, Executive Director of Wines of Chile USA. “We thought speed-dating would be a perfect environment for wine lovers to discover new, premium Chilean wines. While we hope attendees find the love of their lives at our events, we’re confident they’ll find wines they love while meeting exciting, new people.”

Love Wine, Love Chile!
