National Malbec Day

Monday, April 17, 2017 - 11:00am

11 AM - 9 PM

Malbec World Day is celebrated on April 17, to commemorate the day when president Domingo Faustino Sarmiento of Argentina officially made it his mission to transform Argentina's wine industry. On that day, back in 1853, he tasked Michel Aimé Pouget, a French soil expert, to bring over new vines. Amongst his selection, was Malbec. Pouget continued experimenting with the adaptation of French varietals to Argentina’s diverse terroirs. A decade later, France underwent a Phylloxera Plague that affected the Rhône region. In the mean time, Malbec flourished in Argentina creating wines widely superior than those of its country of origin.

We will be offering $5 glasses of malbec from 11am until 9pm. Stop by and join us at either our tasting room or our winery!

No reservations required. Restaurant will be open.
