When Joe met Derek
Garage Wine Co is different to the big, established companies that dominate the Chilean market. Their hand-crafted, artisan wines are produced from grapes purchased from small growers in the Maipo and Maule valleys. Following on from the 2010 earthquake that ravaged much of Chile, Garage has helped many growers to restore their vineyards and showed them how to make (and sell) brilliant wines to drinkers as far away as the UK.
Joe Fattorini talks to Derek Mossman Knapp from Garage Wine Co. about traditional grape growing in the Maule and the authentic taste of Chile.
