Canapés & Nibbles
Founded in 1856, Cousiño Macul is the only winery in Chile amongst those established in the 19th century that continues in the hands of the original founding family. The name of the winery is derived from the family name of its founder (Matías Cousiño), plus the name given to the area where the esrare was built, within the Maipo Valley: the company name implies “the Cousiño estate at Macul”. The Cousiño Macul winery is today governed by the sixth generation, direct descendents of its founder, Matías Cousiño. As said by Arturo Cousiño, Chairman of the Board of Directors, “Our objective is to produce world-class wines that are authentically Chilean, wines that have true varietal character and express the unique terroir of the Maipo Valley.
What to drink with... Canapés & Nibbles.
Often the precursor to an event, who can resist a glass of bubbles, a crisp white or a crowd pleasing red? So, if your nibbles are mainly pastry, pick a more acidic wine: Champagne, Sauvignon Blanc. Smoked salmon: bubbles are good but avoid an oaked Chardonnay: the tannins of the oak will clash with the smokiness of the salmon leaving a bitter aftertaste. Spicy nibbles: try our aromatic Riesling. Cocktail sausages: our Sélection Laurence Féraud Côtes du Rhône.
If you want to simplify your selection, stick to a rosé for everyone or go trendy retro with a sherry.
