The award includes an extensive interview that Peter Richards made to Chadwick because of this distinction.
In recognition of his "pioneering vision and his great determination that has helped boost Chilean wine on the world stage", the English magazine Decanter chose Eduardo Chadwick, president of Viña Errazuriz, as the "Man of the year".
The award, which was announced in the April issue of the magazine, includes an extensive interview that Peter Richards, Master of Wine and important wine critic, made to Chadwick because of this distinction.
Decanter delivered this award more than 30 years ago and this is the first time that a Chilean is named with this award. Among the winners of the past editions include Robert Mondavi, Angelo Gaja, Jancis Robinson, Miguel Torres, Aubert de Villane and Steven Spurrier.
