Viva Sudamerica! The Wines & Tastes of South America
Presented by Paul Kelly Wheeler

 

Summary:


Which will be your favorites, the rich Chardonnays and red varietals of Chile or the fragrant Torrontes and sultry Malbecs of Argentina? Explore the viticultural areas of Chile and learn which ones excel at lush fruity whites and which are perfect for complex layered Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon. Perhaps Chile’s native Carménère will become your new favorite wine with foods, like Churrascaria or Argentine Steak Chimichurri, cooked on the backyard grill! Enjoy sexy Malbecs nestled at the foothills of the snow-capped Andes and discover why this varietal is growing so fast in popularity.

Chef Cidney will serve up a few tastes of authentic South American treats, perfectly paired with these superb wines. Authentic tango guitar tunes will greet you as you arrive for this fun and delicious evening. Let us transport you straight to the land where the grapes for Torrontes, Malbec and Carménère are grown against the backdrop of the soaring Andes, home to some of the highest elevation vineyards in the world.
