OpenWine is a young czech company, leaded by the chilean Jorge Atisha, who is living in Czech Republic since 2005 and his czech partner Michaela Wolfová.
It began as a hobby but after few time of good experience with the first clients and the advice of expert sommeliers, was very easy to appreciate the potential business on it. Today OpenWine is a growing s.r.o.company, and our mission is to bring the best taste from southamerica to the wine consumers from Czech Republic and other countries in Central Europe.
Santa Ema Syrah Reserve
Blackberry, chocolate and pepper. Syrah can be a tricky grape if your not into complexity. I found good balance here without too much pepper that turns many people away. Smooth and earthy, look for hints of leather. (and leave the salad in the fridge for this one).
Mendoza Heights Malbec Merlot
Light and an easy pairing wine for just about anything. Mendoza is Argentina's largest wine region and is one of the highest wine growing regions in the world. The only criticism I had of this wine was the brown, boring label. The contents of the bottle is anything but.
Santa Ema Sauvignon Gris Reserve
Much more subtle and dry. Sauvignon Gris is actually a pink grape with a toned down version of the Sauvignon Blanc characteristics. This makes it an easier wine to drink, and this aged gem will be emptied in no time.
Something about growing wine in Patagonia brings out the craziest flavors. The last thing I expected here was a full mouth of banana, vanilla and grapefruit. Not over oaked and a real treat of exotic flavor. Loved it!
Sauvignon Blanc Sel. Terroir
Honest question. Have you had a Chilean Sauvignon in the past 3 years at any price that wasn’t good ? I haven’t found one. This is another entry in a long list of very drinkable Sauvignons with a fruity nose, grapefruit taste and a slightly oily finish.
Chardonnay Select Terroir
After all my bad mouthing of Chardonnay in the past, I have discovered that |I actually like it more when it comes out of a steel tank! Fresh with a surprisingly light acidity and short finish. This is a great entry level wine that is perfect for a mid week dinner when you don’t want to pull out the big guns…
La Puerta Torrontes
Serve this wine cold and you will be happier. This will leave you a very pleasant finish and neutralize the front end that is a little challenged by the alcohol.
Carmenère Barrel Reserve
Forest fruit and just a little musty. The subtle tannin make this a great full bodied wine that will not be competing with your food for monimnace. It is also a great red for sipping on the couch. Just relax…
Pueblo del Sol Tannat Roble
This will be very much a food wine for most of you. Lighter in color and flavor than the other heavy reds, this wine also has a bit more acidity demanding a bit of protein or fat to accompany it. My tip, a perfect match for pork on the BBQ !

Caramel, caramel and I could say caramel. So soft and round, it will challenge every ounce of your willpower not to just grab the bottle and drink the entire thing on the sofa! A fuller bodied red will be difficult to find, so open it with a friend!
The second anchor of Malbec day. Cherries, vanilla and caramel with just a hint of oak. A very full bodied wine that you will not want to share. Truly desert in a bottle.
Saurus Malbec Rosé
This was the KING of International Malbec day 2015! The fact that I needed a tow truck to get friends and family away from this stand. The is truly a rare wine as you don’t see rose’s from Malbec often – even less in Patagonia. We guarantee you will love it.
