WINES OF ARGENTINA PRESENTS THE ARGENTINA TASTING EXPERIENCE 2015 IN SAN PABLO

The great Brazilian metropolis will host the global launch of this new initiative by Wines of Argentina to present some of the best wines of our country.

On September 30th, Wines of Argentina will be holding The Argentina Tasting Experience in the Brazilian city of Sao Paulo, at Hotel 115 in Vila Madalena. The event will feature a mega-blind tasting, various themed sensory tastings and a central space with a bar packed with wines which were awarded Gold and Silver medals at the Argentina Wines Awards 2015.

The Argentina Tasting Experience will be a dynamic and interactive event where guests will be able to attend various conferences with renowned speakers like winemaker Alejandro Vigil from Catena Zapata, Sebastián Zuccardi Familia Zuccardi, Bernardo Bossi of Casarena, The Director of Chandon, Hervé Birnie Scott and Manoel Beato, Chief Sommelier of Grupo Fasano, among others.

About 150 people will have the chance to do a simultaneous blind tasting of the 18 wines awarded Trophy and Gold in the latest edition of the Argentina Wine Awards. Other activities will include the "BARRA AWA" with the 22 Gold and Silver winners at the 2015 AWA.

There will also be a central, ”social" space for guests to enjoy a cocktail, music sessions with guest DJs and a photo booth for those wishing to be photographed.

"It's the first time WofA has held the Argentina Tasting Experience and Sao Paolo was chosen as the venue. We believe that the ATE is an innovative and dynamic way to promote Argentine wine in the market. In fact, we have been working for many months to bring Argentine wines and the Argentina Wine Awards contest to Brazilian consumers so we have high expectations and we are confident it will be successful. "- said Mario Giordano, General Manager of Wines of Argentina .

ARGENTINA WINE AWARDS

Organised by Wines of Argentina since 2007, the AWA is the most important Argentine competition for export wines. It brings together the most prestigious international experts and allows local wineries to show the world the refined intensity of their wines. Its objective is to evaluate and reward the quality and progress of Vino Argentino.

The criteria used for tasting is based on the classification of all samples by type, variety and price, performed during a blind tasting.

The jury varies with each edition, strengthening the different aspects of the target markets. Nonetheless, it always guarantees the presence of 12 qualified specialists including journalists, Masters of Wine, Master Sommeliers and Winemakers with an overview of the global wine market. In addition, the team of international tasting judges is accompanied by six prestigious experts from Argentina.
