Latin American Wine Tasting Event: From Argentina to St Albans..

As part of the St. Albans Food and Drink Festival, Zefino Wine And Spirits are hosting a wine tasting event on Friday 2nd of October from 6pm to 8pm. With Sophia Benvenuto -ower of Finca Sophenia, located in Mendoza, Argentina.

"Located in the high altitude Tupungato Valley region of Mendoza, this modern winery benefits from a long, cool growing season and strong UV sunlight that helps maximise the aromas and complexity of the resulting grapes.Tupungato sits at the western extreme of Mendoza right at the foot of the Andes mountains with an elevation of 1,200 meters giving benefit to the vineyards from a much cooler climate, abundant sun, and sharp contrast between day and night temperatures. When all the above is combined it allows the winemaker the opportunity to produce wines with utmost expression. Wine consultant Michel Rolland (from Bordeaux) has added his expertise to this project and in the last few years since launch the range of wines have received numerous awards and accolades."
