Argentine wines succeed at Vinexpo Hong Kong

The wines presented in the Argentine pavilion during the latest edition of Vinexpo Asia-Pacific in Hong Kong, China, from May 25th to 27th, delivered an outstanding performance.

Nearly 40 wineries traveled to Hong Kong under the sponsorship of Wines of Argentina and the Federal Board of Investment to participate in the fair, together with other wineries that were represented by their importers at the Hong Kong Convention & Exhibition Centre. On this occasion, the number of attending Argentine wineries hit a historical record.

The Argentine pavilion received hundreds of visitors and was highly praised for its functionality and refined aesthetics.

A major attraction of the exhibition was the Vinexpo Academy, which included a seminar on wines awarded prizes at the Argentina Wine Awards 2010. At the seminar, Debra Meiburg, Master of Wine and panel member during the last edition of that contest, captivated the audience with a superb presentation on Argentina’s wines and culture.

Debra made full display of her charm and flair for teaching. With her engaging style and skill as an "educator", she involved the audience in a unique experience, entertaining them with anecdotes and even having them participate in role plays.

The wines selected by the MW for this presentation were:
Susana Balbo Crios Torrontés, Ruca Malen Petit Verdot, Las Moras Gran Shiraz 3 Valleys, Santa Ana Malbec Shiraz and El Zorzal Climax Malbec, all of which were Trophy winners at the AWA.
