Wine Tasting at the Kitchen
We are happy to announce that we will be providing wine tastings each month on the second and last Mondays.
Our Next Tasting:
Monday, February 27th, 2017
Here is a little more details about this coming Monday’s tasting. GL is planning on a head to head tasting of like wines from two of the leading producers in Argentina.
Argentina is a relative newcomer to the wine world. Enjoying natural diversity of climates and spoil types, wine makers have enjoyed exploring the many high altitude wine regions of Mendoza. We will explore two family estate producers in their third generation of wine making in Argentina. Nicola Catena established his family in Mendoza in 1902 and has become the preeminent enologist leading Argentinian wine to its position of prominence in today’s market. The Pulenta family also has enjoyed three generations of wine making in Argentina with brothers Eduardo and Hugo establishing their newest operation in 2002.
At Monday’s event we will have a comparative tasting of each family’s wines:
Pulenta, Lujon De Cuyo Chardonnay VII 2015
Pulenta, La Flor Malbec 2016
Pulenta, La Flor Cabernet 2014
Bodegas Catena Zapata, Chardonnay 2015
Bodegas Catena Zapata, Malbec 2013
Bodegas Catena Zapata, Cabernet Sauvignon 2014
