Argentina: A Wine Pairing Seminar

Date: Wednesday, October 22
Time: 6 pm to 8 pm
Location: Waterford Wine Company
Cost: $60 per person, price includes wines and food.
Format: Wine Pairing, RSVP required

Argentina – now famous for Malbec.

But there is more to Argentina than Malbec – great Cabernet, fantastic Chardonnay, exciting Torrontes and some of the world’s oldest Cabernet Franc vines.  But even beyond these delights are the history, culture, and culinary wonders of Argentina.

At this tasting, Waterford Wine Company presents Argentina and its wines through the fun, exciting tradition of the asado grande – yes, the Asado Grande.  Not just a Great Grill, but a cultural tradition that gives us entry into the beautiful world that is Argentina.

Join us for a stimulating conversation across Argentina’s wine regions while enjoying several little snacks that will offer a perfect pairing to the wines.

It’s the ultimate in food, wine and fun!

For the Love of Italy: Indigenous Grapes From the Boot

Date: Wednesday, October 29
Time: 6 pm to 7:30
Location: Waterford Wine Company
Cost: $35 per person, credited towards a six bottle purchase
Format: Seminar, RSVP required

We are mostly familiar with French grape varieties – Cabernet, Merlot, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc, among others.

Yet there are thousands of grape varieties in the world. And Italy alone has 2,000 indigenous varieties!

So why do should we limit ourselves? It’s time to spread our wings and take a trip down the fantastic boot that is Italian wine.  At this tasting we will tour Italy through some its most amazing – and sometimes proudly esoteric – grape varieties!
