This month Winemaker’s Night returns to The Vines Tasting Room. Over the last few years, the Tasting Room has invited some of its favorite winemakers to bring their wines and a mind full of knowledge to share with an audience in an informal weekly tasting.
A great opportunity to try wines from the portfolio of one particular winery or winemaker, Winemaker’s Nights is not just about tasting wine, but getting the story behind the producer and having free reign to shoot some of those niggling questions you might have about terroir, Mendoza or clones and get answers from an experienced winemaker in a relaxed setting.
This month there are four winemakers lined up to start off the season. This week Gimenez Riili kicks off the new series on Wednesday, November 5th with their (and The Vines') winemaker Pablo Martorell at 7pm.
Next Wednesday, November 12, Zorzal will tread the boards with their modern winemaking and excellent wines coming from Guaytallary in the Uco Valley.
Zorzal is followed by boutique producer Moor-Barrio on November 19th, and the month finishes with one of the most historical winemaking families in Mendoza, Benegas Lynch, on November 26th.
Book your spots now! Winemaker’s Night is $150 pesos per person and starts at 7pm (running till around 9pm). Tickets are available at The Vines Tasting Room on Belgrano (corner of Agustin Alvarez) or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
