This week we are rescheduling our Tuesday Tasting for a great reason! On Wednesday, Jan 30, we’re excited to have Santiago Gouguenheim of Gouguenheim Winery join us to try a number of his award-winning wines. Gouguenheim is a small family-owned vineyard nestled in the foothills of the Andes and one of the highest altitude vineyards in Mendoza, Argentina. We’ll be trying several of their wines including:
- Torrontes – Argentina’s most popular white grape makes for a full-bodied, aromatic wine tasting of peach, orange and fresh green herbs (think coriander and dill);
- Malbec – The grape that made Mendoza famous, the bright colors of the fruit shine in this elegant Malbec tasting of ripe red plums and cherries with a touch of violet and mocha;
- Cabernet Sauvignon – A classic Cab style with rich new world grapes makes for a deep red tasting of black currant and cherry, Asian spices and a touch of French oak; and
- Sparkling Malbec – A delicate bubbly tasting of cherries and strawberries with a touch of acid and mineral on the finish.
*PLEASE NOTE: We will be having two seated tastings at 5:30 and 6:30 in order to work with Santiago’s schedule. If you are interested in attending, please note the time-frame in our FB comments section so we can come up with a rough headcount for our back room.
