National Malbec Day! Free Tasting!

National Malbec Day! Free Tasting!

Wednesday, April 17, 2019 - 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.

Free tasting from 5- 8 PM!

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 than those of its country of origin.

We will be offering a FREE tasting of 3 Malbecs and have them available to purchase either a glass at $5 or a bottle at $20-$25.
This event will take place at both locations from 5pm until 8pm.
No reservations required. Restaurant will be open.
