Oenophiles around the globe are picking up on what Chile has known for centuries; the warm, sun-drenched days and cool Andes nights have created a climate perfectly suited for viticulture, and the results are outstanding. Chile’s signature grape is, of course, the Carmenere, and nowhere else in the world does it taste better. But Chile also offers world-class versions of Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir and last but not least, Malbec. There is always sufficient reason to raise a glass here. With LATAM Airlines, passengers begin wine tasting the moment they step on-board. Passengers in our Premium Business Class can enjoy our renowned wine list, selected by South America’s only Master Sommelier Hector Vergara, and in our Economy Class cabin, passengers can also enjoy complementary wines of our region.
