Doors open at: 06:00 PM

24 different wines and two sessions to choose from:

6PM-8PM

815PM-1015PM

Saturday, February 8th we will be tasting fine wine from different wineries in South America.

Chile’s Central Valley is widely known and well regarded, and its Casablanca region is gaining increasing attention. Brazil, Uruguay and Peru are also producing fine and exciting wine from grape varieties long forgotten in other countries.

Mendoza dominates Argentina’s eight principal wine regions, producing over 70% of it’s wines. The climate is continental, with large temperature swings between day and night, and four full seasons offering hot summers and cold winters. Elevation is also a key factor influencing wine quality. White varieties of importance are Chardonnay and Torrontés, while key red varieties include Cabernet and Malbec.

Refreshments as well as passed hors d'œuvres will be served during the event.

It is like dancing tango, but better.

 

Socialize: Take a picture of the bottle using instagram hashtag #grapestobottles, followed by a wine name (for example #grapestobottles #boublymuscato). That’s it. 

After the event, you will be able to see it right in your existing instagram account or on our website, along with other participants.

Please taste responsibly.
