National Malbec Day (Both Locations)

Tuesday, April 17, 2018 - 5:00pm

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 meantime, Malbec flourished in Argentina creating wines widely superior to those of its country of origin.

We will be offering glasses of Malbec for a special price from 5pm until 8pm.
