Huaso and Pinot
Framed against the blue sky at sunset, a huaso prepares to saddle up as the last light fades from a set of Pinot Noir vines in the Casablanca Valley. Huasos are traditional Chilean horsemen, the equivalent of American Cowboys or Argentine Gauchos. Easily spotted because of their traditional ponchos and straw hats called chupallas, huasos are a fixture of the country’s central valley, though, like American Cowboys, they are now more folkloric symbols of a previous era than a part of the dominant culture. — Alder Yarrow
