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.
The program’s goal is to bring wine and wine education closer to Mendocinians and the tourists who fill the city, drawn in by Malbec and the wine makers who created a space for Argentina in the New World of wine.
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.”
Participation in the Urban Wine tasting is free for both Mendoza natives and tourists alike. Children under the age of 18 will not be permitted.
With the weather cooling down, outdoor events at night can get slightly chilly. We recommend dressing in layers and enjoying a delicious dinner in the downtown area after the Wine Talk.
