On May 10th, 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. wine lovers will gather in the Carlos Pellegrini Plaza in Mendoza City to take part in the next segment of the “Wine Talks in the City” Program, sponsored by the City of Mendoza.

In celebration of Mendoza’s status as an International Wine Capital of the World, Wine Talks in the City will take place throughout plazas and green spaces in Mendoza.
The first event of in the Urban Wine Talks series took place in February, when over 100 participants tasted a range of varietals from two of Mendoza’s wineries. The program is set to continue through May and will incorporate new discussions, tastings and wineries at each event.
Daniel Alvarez, owner of Uva Negra, one of the participating wineries, said that “These activities are very important for us, to talk about wine, serve it to people, it provides feedback that serves everyone.”
