Join us, along with Kristy Fiorelli of Breakthru Beverage, as we travel south of the equator to sample wines from Argentina, the fifth largest producer of wine in the world. Many different varieties of grapes are cultivated in Argentina, reflecting the country's many immigrant groups. The French brought Malbec, which makes most of Argentina's best known wines. The Italians brought vines that they called Bonarda, although Argentine Bonarda is also known as Charbono in California. Torrontés is another typically Argentine grape and is mostly found in the provinces of La Rioja, San Juan, and Salta. Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Chardonnay and other international varieties are becoming more widely planted.
Tonight’s wines will be paired perfectly with a specialty five course dinner for $70 per person.
Varietals to be tasted are:
1st: Brut Blanc de Blanc
2nd: Rose, Torrontes and Chardonnay
3rd: Tempranillo, Malbec, Petit Verdot, Red Blend and Cabernet
4th: Sparkling Brut Rose
