Toast the safe rescue of the Chilean miners with sustainable wine from Chile
After two days of being glued to the news watching the miners emerge, it's time to celebrate.

My friends over at Organic Wine Review
gave me this idea when they posted a review of an organic wine from Chile and proposed on their Facebook page
that we should celebrate Chile. What a great idea. If you’ve been fascinated with the story of the 33 miners from Chile
who were rescued over the past two days, you may feel like celebrating their rescue. Toasting them with a wine from their country seems like the perfect way to do that.
After I saw their review, I popped over to Snooth.com
, a great wine website with a feature that will search for particular wines at stores near you. Unfortunately, the wine they reviewed didn’t show up at any stores near me. I did some research to see what other sustainable wines from Chile were available so I can raise a glass this weekend and honor the miners and the hundreds of people who worked tirelessly for their rescue.
- Y+B Sauvignon Blanc: This wine in a tetra pack is created from 100 percent organic Sauvignon Blanc grapes from Chile’s Central Valley. (About $13.)
- Emiliana Coyam Red Blend: A biodynamic blend of Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Carménère, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Mourvedre that Wine Spectator gives 91 points. (About $30.)
- 35 South Chardonnay: An organic Chardonnay at a good price. (About $10.)
- De Martino Cabernet Malbec: An organic red blend from the winery that owns 12 percent of all the organic vineyards in Chile. (About $12.)
