We had Alberto and Dan in Studio from Fogo de Chao ( visit www.FogodeChao.com ). And calling direct from Chile, Italo Jofre, aka Ambassador for the Famous Concha Y Toro Winery… these guys are making some noise again in the wine world in a big big way. Thanks to everyone for being on the Show !!!
Italo’s Jofre’s passion for wine, friendly, outgoing personality and excellent communications skills soon brought him to the attention of Concha y Toro. His wide-ranging experience dovetails perfectly into Concha y Toro’s diverse portfolio, which ranges from Casillero del Diablo, sold in more countries worldwide than any other wine, to Don Melchor, Chile‘s most celebrated Cabernet Sauvignon, to the cutting edge Maycas line from the emerging region of Limari.

The success of Cain depends on the combination of an incredible site, an inspired vision, patient, persevering, and tenacious ownership, and the unending hard work of the Cain team. Take any of these key elements away, and you would not be reading this—nor would we even be writing it. What follows is just the briefest outline of the complex and exciting story of how our wine estate came into being.
Founders: In 1980, Jerry and Joyce Cain purchased 550 acres, part of the historic McCormick Ranch, on Spring Mountain. Their vision was to develop a mountain vineyard dedicated to the classical blend of varieties: Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Malbec, and Petit Verdot. The fruit of this vineyard would inspire the creation of the Cain Five—its first vintage was 1985. As the project was coming into focus, the Cains were joined by Jim and Nancy Meadlock. The Meadlocks became partners at the beginning of 1986, and, since the retirement of the Cains in 1991, have carried on as sole owners, providing steadfast and active support for this very long-term project.
