Event Description

Argentina, with its winemaking roots reaching back to the 1500′s, has a fascinating history of adaptation, innovation, and improbable progress given the ups and downs of its political history. Malbec has been king here, but winemakers from this region are working hard to demonstrate that Argentina is no one-grape wonder.

We are beginning to see "full-blooded", seductive wines of spice and passion from Argentina now, and, like their neighbours across the Andes in Chile, they produce excellent value, mostly red but increasingly white, varietal wines across all price points.

Alongside Malbec, we are seeing the emergence of some very good Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah, followed by Merlot, Tempranillo, Sangiovese, Pinot Noir and Barbera. White wines are on the rise too, with the most interesting coming from the fruity, floral Torrontés grape, but the there are some very fine wines from the ubiquitous Chardonnay, starting to really show just what the Argentineans are capable of.

Join us as we make our way up and down this side of the Andes in search of some great wines at, more often than not, great prices. As we taste, we will discuss just how the regions have improved over the last 10 years, what the differences are in their wines, and what the future holds for this evolving region.

On this evening a minimum of 6 wines will be tasted.
