It may come as a surprise, but Argentina is the world's fifth-largest wine producer. Though they may be underappreciated by some, it's not for a lack of quality. Argentina has a rich and fascinating history of viticulture, spanning almost 500 years and a myriad of styles and techniques. They are more than just Malbec. Although most of their wine was historically consumed within their own borders, a combination of factors has led to colossal increases in export volume and quality over the last few decades.
We're excited to be joined on March 20th by importer Janine Poleman, whose extensive travels allow her to work directly with the producers she represents. Join us to celebrate the food and wine of South America's sleeping giant!
