On Thursday 15 October 2020, the Cambridge Food & Wine Society of Canada named Eduardo Chadwick their 2020 RIEDEL Austria Winemaker of the Year.
President of Viñedos Familia Chadwick, Eduardo’s wines, such as Don Maximiano Founder’s Reserve, Seña and Viñedo Chadwick, are considered by international wine writers to be amongst the finest in the world. For years he has been one of the most enthusiastic promoters of Chile’s wine industry.
This award was presented to Eduardo by Sheila Swerling Puritt, Wine Writers Circle of Canada. For this award, RIEDEL sent Eduardo one of their Amadeo Performance decanters, which was introduced in 2019 as a complement to the groundbreaking RIEDEL Performance glass series.
The Cambridge Food & Wine Society of Canada also awarded their 2020 Grand Prix D’honneur for Best Latin American Wine to Errazuriz for its 2018 Max Cabernet Sauvignon.
The Cambridge Food & Wine Society of Canada is an organization co-founded in 1998 by Professors Leo Chan and Gian Paolo Michelini. Past recipients of the RIEDEL Winemaker of the Year included Robert Mondavi, Lamberto Marchesi de Frescobaldi, Miguel Torres, and Anthony von Mandle.
