This successful wine tasting, which gathered more than 300 people, took place during the official opening of the 2009 International Chicago Tango Fest. The event was held at the emblematic Chicago Cultural Center building, on Friday, August 28th.
This wine tasting was very useful to promote Argentina’s country image and wines as it was targeted to a mixed audience within the consumer trade, was held at a top-level venue and attracted a large number of people.
Among the most renowned attendees were Master Sommelier Alpana Singh, Michelle Obama’s high fashion designer Maria Pinto, Sommeliers and managers of important restaurants (razzaz, Carmine's, Chicago Fire House, TRU Restaurant, Sunda, etc.), hotel chain representatives (Park Hyatt Hotels Intl., Hilton Palmer House) and the press (Univision Radio Chicago, Telefutura 60, ABC 7 Chicago, Diario Hoy), besides local authorities and business people. Nineteen Argentine wine distributors based in the US also participated in the event.
It is worth mentioning that this has been the most important wine tasting organized by our country over the last three years in the city of Chicago, the third largest wine market in the United States.
