Holidays are coming and between the families already begin the questions... Where do we spend Christmas?…
The 16th edition of Expo Wines will be held from 15 to September 17, from 6 to 11 pm at the Pavilion Frers of La Rural.
Visiting Argentina and not going to a wine tasting is like not having gone to the country. So today we share you an excellent plan so you can enjoy the stay in the country.
Each year the wines & wineries Expo has become the meeting place par excellence of the wine lovers. This event, that brings to the main wineries of Argentina, invites to taste flavors and to travel around the country through its wines.
During three days you may appreciate the different wines of the 40 Argentine wineries enjoying their features, aromas and flavors, along with the gastronomic offer of the Food Trucks.
Expo wines invites you to meet and learn about the different wine-producing regions: the route of Malbec, emblematic strain of the Argentina; the route of the Torrontés, an autochthonous white variety with great presence in the North of the country; the Crianza route intended to know and understand the different denominations that we find in the tags; the path to non-traditional varieties which are transported to the Tempranillo, Bonarda and Cabernet Franc and sweets and sparkling wines route, an ideal category for cocktails, desserts and festivities.
The tour is organized by the school of Sommeliers of the Gato Dumas,who will offer tastings guided.
