Wine 101: Understanding Malbec – Thursday, May 23rd., 2013 – 7-9 pm

Although there is more Malbec cultivated in Argentina than anywhere else in the world, the grape actually hails from the southwestern part of France, where it is still grown.  These days, the grape is enjoying a wave of popularity and it is grown in a number of wine producing countries and regions, including Chile, Washington state, and the Loire Valley just to name a few.  For this seated tasting, we’ll talk about and taste several different Malbecs from all over the world and you should gain an understanding that the grape produces a wide range of styles of wine that have less to do with the grape and more to do with where it’s grown and who is making it.  Bread, cheese and other light palate cleansers are included witht the price of entry.  Space is limited so please call us at 828.505.8588 to reserve your spot and pre-pay.
