Starry Nights Vineyard
MOVI Wine Tasting and Lunch with Luis, Ana Maria, and Fernando Atabales of Starry Night Vineyard - Maipo Coast, Chile
Founded by Dutch astronomer Peter de Jonge, the aptly named Starry Night Vineyard rests in the southern Maipo region with the Pacific to the east and Andes to the west. The cool climate is ideal for the winery’s star Syrahs and Pinot Noirs. As part of the Part of Movement of Independent Vintners (MOVI), Starry Nights current owners, Ana María and Luis Atabales, often feature wines from its like-minded cohorts of MOVI, hosting tastings representing close to 30 wineries. MOVI vintners shun the practices of the conservative Chilean wine industry in favor of smaller wine production with more individuality—they also know how to host a party. And if you’re lucky, you’ll happen upon (or plan in advance) a tasting and family-style meal with this brigade of rogue Chilean vintners.
