It was a very busy schedule for Enrique Tirado in England. Upon arriving, he had lunch with The Drinks Business editor Arabella Mileham to discuss the history of Don Melchor and its important role in the history of Chilean wine and to taste the 2012 and 2013 vintages of this iconic Cabernet Sauvignon.
