Wines of Argentina to host ‘summer wine’ tasting

Wines of Argentina is due to hold a summer solstice trade tasting in London this June, focusing on the country’s white, rosé and sparkling wines.

Part of this year’s Barullo Sessions, an event series which highlights the producers making “special, unique wines” beyond easy-drinking reds, the event follows a similar tasting held last year.

Due to take place at Fora Borough, the event aims to highlight Argentina’s drive to “rediscover its terroirs” and its focus on refining its white offering.

Among the wineries already signed up to exhibit their wines are: Alpamanta estate, Bodega Atamisque, Bodega Norton, Bodega Piedra Negra, Bodegas Krontiras, Casa de Uco, El Esteco, Finca Flichman, Finca la Anita, Bodega Enrique Foster, Kaiken, Los Haroldos, Masi Tupungato, Renacer and Susana Balbo Wines.

Commenting on the wines on offer at the tasting, Europe and UK ambassador for Wines of Argentina, Phil Crozier, said: “New plantings of a wide range of varietals, complement older vine Sémillon, Chardonnay and of course Torrontés. Perhaps the greatest strides Argentina has made is in fresher, more friendly styles, and this is no more evident than in their white wines.

“Lighter styles of rosé and a long tradition of sparkling wine goes back a long way in Argentina’s history. Latin America has a huge thirst for sparkling wines and so they form a major part of almost all winery portfolios in Argentina.

“With a ‘less is more’ philosophy holding court, especially with Argentina’s new, young breed of winemakers – and an increasing movement towards new, cooler climes, such as the Atlantic Ocean and Patagonia – there is new confidence in making distinctive, quality white wines. This summer themed wine tasting is sure to produce some surprises.”
