Wines of Argentina – Happy Hour

Friday, April 22 at 6 p.m. on Zoom

Join critics John Szabo M.S. and Michael Godel on Friday evening, April 22, for a WineAlign cocktail hour taste-along as they take you through four true-to-place wines from Argentina. Sip, savour and become proficient in high-altitude viticulture as John and Michael recollect and share from their collective Argentina experience. There will be tales of the capital Buenos Aires, micro-terroirs in Mendoza and Patagonia, and extreme desert grape-growing from Salta. One hour later you may just find yourself dreaming of travel to South America, your mind’s eye swimming with images of snow-capped Andes Mountains and endless vineyard vistas. John and Michael will guarantee to keep a weekend cocktail vibe alive during this fun and casual hour, maybe even teaching you a thing or two about signature Argentinian grape varieties and where they thrive, in and out of their “altitude extrema” locations.

We hope you join us to celebrate the wines of Argentina on Zoom on April 22 at 6 p.m. To taste along with us, please refer to the wine list below. All wines are available through LCBO/VINTAGES.
