We’re so excited to launch Wines Around the World. Every month we will be featuring a red wine, a white wine, a sparkling wine, and a rose from a different country/region around the world!

During the rest of the month of January, we will be featuring wines from Argentina! Argentina is the 5th largest wine producer in the world and 8th in consumption. Argentina did not begin to heavily export wine until the 1990s, as the country consumed 90% of all wine that was produced. They are now the largest wine exporter in South America with Mendoza, San Juan, and La Rioja being their most important wine-producing regions.

Come out on January 26th for a special wine tasting of these wines. The cost will be $15 for a flight of four wines and the tasting presentation.

Below are the wines that will be available at the tasting:
