The last time I sat down with winemaker Grant Phelps, he was making Malbec at Chile’s Viu Manent in the warm Colchagua Valley, where he seemed to have settled in nicely. So I was a little surprised when I heard he moved north this past January, to the cooler Casablanca Valley, to take over as head winemaker at the smaller Casas del Bosque winery, which has an average track record for quality since it debuted at the start of the decade. I sat down with him again this past week to get caught up on his move, which now has him focusing on Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc.
