Tourists and locals alike will gather in the heart of the city on Avenida Sarmiento starting on Thursday, February 27, for the sixth annual Megadegustación (Mega Tasting). Starting at 8:30 p.m. each night, the event will run through Monday, March 3, giving event-goers ample opportunity to taste the fruits of the labor from 250 wineries.
From sparkling wines to malbecs, the best wineries in the province will put forth their selection of fine wines. Entrance to the event is free, but if you want to taste (and of course, you must) coupons are available for purchase on site starting at $60 pesos to taste six (6) classic wines. To taste a premium selection, coupons are available for $90 pesos.
Go for the wine, but stay for the culture and art. The charm of the Megadegustación is the atmosphere that is guaranteed to engage the rest of your senses while you taste. Wander along Sarmiento, wine glass in hand, and peruse the art, listen to the music and soak up the excitment of the harvest celebration.
If the wine puts you in an artsy mood, be sure to check out the Pablo Picasso exhibit, "Picasso's Graphic Language," at the Municipal Museum of Modern Art , which will remain open until 12 a.m. during the days of the Megadegustación. Restaurants will also remain open throughout the event to give you even more reasons to stay and enjoy the Mendoza's nightlife during the most celebrated time of the year.
The event takes place outside, so dress accordingly, remembering it can get a bit cool in the evening. Remember to bring pesos.
