We went to the wine tasting event at the Hilton Hotel in Seoul where this Chilean winery was displaying some of their finest vintages. Chile and Korea just signed a WTO trade agreement and so there are a lot of Chilean products being floated in the Korean market, which is good if you love wine. I can only imagine that conversely there are a lot of people in Santiago running around with Samsung cellphones. We only took a few pictures because after a few glasses of wine, cataloging the event was not foremost in our minds. Afterwards, we went to the casino in the hotel reserved only for foreigners. I am not much of a gambler but my lady played a few hands of blackjack. A remarkably swanky evening for a man wearing a cheap suit.

I recommend, if you like wine, to take a look at this winery’s website. Excellent stuff:
