Fine Wines of Argentina - Online
Fine Wines of Argentina - Online
A new era is dawning for everyone involved in classrooms and events. Using modern technology, we can enjoy learning about our favourite wines (and gin) from the comfort and safety of our own homes. This has the added advantage that nobody needs to be the “designated driver”. Using Zoom video conferencing is just like being in the room with Gary, who will, as ever educate, inform and entertain you for about an hour.
All sessions will be recorded and if you can't attend at the last minute just let us know so you can go through the event at your convenience later.
Why not invite your friends to make it a truly social experience?
Following on from our look at fine wine from Bordeaux in France, we jump to the other side of the world and look at one of the most exciting and innovative countries in the world of wine – Argentina.
World famous for Malbec, there is much more to enjoy from this country, with wine production totally dominated by the power of nature including the highest vineyards in the world. Over three weeks, Gary will talk you through SIX fine Argentinian wines, grouped into themes as shown below, culminating in TWO fantastic Malbecs.
This course is a must for lovers of Malbec and new world style winemaking at its best. Including two grape varieties you may never have even heard of!
Gary will be hosting an interactive Zoom online session for 1 hour (over 3 Friday evenings) limited to just 20 subscriptions to allow everyone to ask questions and participate in the session.
All YOU have to do is purchase a ticket from the Shropshire Wine School website by clicking the "BOOK" button below, as you would normally. A ticket entitles ALL members of your household to join in. There is no need to buy one ticket per person. Once your ticket purchased, you will receive a confirmation email with your ZOOM web link and password 2 days before the event itself.
We have teamed up with the UK's leading specialist Argentinian wine merchant Taste Argentina from Oswestry to supply the wines for this event and have negotiated a discount from them for supply the six wines (see below). Please allow one week for delivery. Note, you don't have to buy the wines to attend the online session - that is entirely optional.
£50 for all three sessions. The cost is per subscription, so this could be for 2 people (or more) as long as you are sharing a screen in the same household.
£79.99 plus £4.95 delivery for the wines, payable to Taste Argentina (see below)
Important Note, when booking this event, your name and email address only will be passed to Taste Argentina and they will contact you to arrange the sale and delivery of the wines. Shropshire Wine School do not sell wine and are not involved in this supply of wine which is entirely at your discretion.
Week 1: Uniquely Argentina
2 grape varieties unique to Argentina, the highly perfumed white Torrontes from some of the world’s highest vineyards and Criolla a previously overlooked red variety that’s now delivering some lovely wine.
• Kaiken Cafayate Torrontes 2018
• Recoleta Criolla 2018
Week 2: Patagonia
The cooler, southern vineyards allow Pinot Noir and Cabernet Franc to show what they can do – lovely!
• Aniello Pinot Noir 2018
• Verum Seleccion de Familia Cabernet Franc 2018
Week 3: Malbec
Of course, we have to pay our respects to Argentina’s signature grape variety and here we compare two very different styles, both from Mendoza. The first is a fruity unoaked example showing Malbec in its purest form. The second is a more traditional example, oaked and full-bodied from one of Mendoza’s top producers.
• Los Poetas Malbec 2017
• Luigi Bosca Single Vineyard Malbec 2016
