I first met Sebastian Labbé when he was head winemaker at the brilliant Viña Carmen, part of the Santa Rita Estates in Chile. In that role he was a frequent visitor to Ireland. The tastings he hosted were fascinating lectures on how to make excellent wine from excellent vineyards. He was always looking forward. 

Today Sebastian is the head winemaker for the Santa Rita Estates Ultra Premium Wines. His quest for seeking the very best from the land continues through a detailed series of innovative techniques and ideas. All are founded on an absolute adherance to the Santa Rita Estates' code of Sustainability**.

In this podcast Sebastian guides us through various facets of his work with Santa Rita's very top wines. He generously brings us into a world of brilliance and innovation. This is a quest where excellence is always the ultimate goal.

While all restaurants in Ireland were closed until recently many have now reopened. This is great news - Open Again! We should remember that many of these, including the wonderful Monty's of Kathmandu, are family businesses. They are often small and brilliant and need our support more than ever. Keep Safe and Keep well. 

Kevin Ecock's WinePod is brought to us with the assistance of the Santa Rita Wine Room at Monty's of Kathmandu - an excellent place to host your next event or celebration.
