The mythical Chilean port city of Valparaiso is a fascinating city in many ways, not least thanks to the artistic street art that gives the colourful city even more colour. Now the wine is also represented. In November, a group of talented street artist were asked by some Chilean wine producers to create large murals on the theme of wine.
The artists were given more or a less free rein to paint vineyards, wine glasses, harvests, Bacchus and more, with sometimes the wine producer’s logo woven into the painting. The wine producers involved include well-known names such as Casas del Bosque, Santa Carolina, Veramonte, Montes, Torres and San Pedro.
The idea behind the project is among other things to promote Chile’s vineyards and, not least, the two regions located just next to Valparaiso, Casablanca and San Antonio.
