Waiting for a flight just got a whole lot more fun…A new wine bar in Santiago Airport offers you just the sort of temptation that will make you forget you are in transit. Boasting over 70 wines by the glass, Vinum wine bar at Gate 12 is a portal into all of Chile’s main valleys and an insight into some of the country’s most interesting producers.
The team have pulled together an impressive list, which changes every 3 months or so to keep regular travellers onto something new. The assortment of producers ranges from the big guns (like Cono Sur, a sponsor with a wide variety of wines by the glass – including their icon wine) to the littleun’s that you rarely find (like biodynamic producers of wine aged in amphorae Tipaume).
Vinum offers the perfect excuse to sip away your boarding time on the excellent variety of Chilean wine. If you or your traveling companion isn’t an oenophile they have artisanal beer, Pisco sours and non-alcoholic refreshers too. Fancy sandwiches and sharing boards give you something tasty to soak up the brilliant booze before boarding.
Gate 12, international departures. Don’t miss your flight!
