Event Description

In Chile, Argentina and now Uruguay there is an exciting wine revolution.

When the first settlers from France, Spain and Italy carried their vines across the ocean to the New World they didn’t just pack Malbec, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Albariño, Barbera and Tannat made the journey too. And pockets of those old vines still survive.

Our next online course features the diversity of modern South American winemaking through eight different grape varieties.

Taste Argentina, Decanter magazine South American Wine Specialist of the year, has carefully curated eight South American wines exclusively for this course. A selection to take you from the Atlantic coast of Uruguay to the Pacific coast of Chile and the heights of the Argentine Andes.

The case has been especially discounted for this course to only £155.00 including free delivery.
