Walking the streets of Buenos Aires, the appeal of Argentina was obvious to me:  its old world architecture, cobblestone streets and social sophistication make you feel at first like you're perusing a piece of Paris. But then every delicious dish and considerate conversation is warm and vibrant: friendly, not formal - translucent, not transactional. If its true that "the people make the place", then there is no better place than Argentina. As comfortable as it is cultured, I can't think of a country that felt so foreign and so familiar to me at the same time.

So why is it that as wine drinkers, when we hear "Argentina", our excitement goes down, not up? So often, this dynamic, diverse wine producing country gets stereotyped as a "one wine wonder", great for making fruity and full Malbec in the Mendoza province. And quite frankly, this stereotype is for great reason: there's no better place on Earth to buy affordable and approachable full bodied reds. But in visiting Mendoza, I was truly blown away by the wines that weren't Malbec - the ease of its sparkling wines, the elegance of its lighter reds, and that oh so lovely salty finish you get from your favorite minerally whites. It felt like I was in on the world's biggest secret: Mendoza isn't just for Malbec.

Thankfully, it's a secret that's easy to share! And for our February tastings, I'll open up my favorites from the trip that will change the way you see Argentine wine, through high quality selections that would hold up in any international tasting. I hope you join us and get to taste for yourself all the deliciousness that Argentina has to offer!
