WofA invites you to the Seminar “Successful Wines and Styles 2011"

On Friday February 25 Wines of Argentina invite you to the Seminar “Successful Wines and Styles 2011: Cabernet Sauvignon and aromatic whites that compete with Torrontés”

In the framework of the Argentina Wine Awards, this seminar will present the formulas that have succeeded in the international markets. It will be held on Friday February 25, from 8:30 to 1:30, at the Sheraton Hotel of Mendoza City.

With the purpose of bringing closer to participants wines that have been successful in the international markets, Wines of Argentina has invited a select group of the world’s most prestigious sommeliers to offer their knowledge and opinions.

This group of extremely knowledgeable specialists, who have a high level of technical training and an unbiased view of the international wine market, will educate attendees on wine styles, winemaking techniques and marketing approaches.

For the selection of judges, Wines of Argentina relied on the valuable collaboration of Andrés Rosberg, president of the Argentine Association of Sommeliers (AAS). 

Attendees will be able to taste these specially selected wines, brought to the seminar from all around the world. Towards the end of the seminar there will be a question and answer session involving the international judges. Around 400 people from wineries from all over Argentina are expected to attend.
