Wine trade and media in Montreal and Toronto will have the chance to experience the new Argentina through 70+ wines that showcase Argentina’s special combination of sunny climates, high altitudes and passionate winemakers.

The word Cambalache has several meanings. Among them, the title of one of the most  famous tangos in the world, composed by Argentine Enrique Santos Discépolo in 1934, an icon of popular Argentine culture.

Cambalache also refers to that which contains or exhibits components or characteristics very differently from each other, which contrast, and at the same time coexist and complement one another.

Within this concept and reflecting everything that has happened in recent years in the Argentine wine industry, WOFA will be offering a different kind of experience to wine enthusiasts during the month of September in Montreal and Toronto.

Today, Argentina’s wine producers are breaking new ground and redefining winemaking. By combining exceptionally diverse terroirs with classic, indigenous grape varieties and by mixing tried-and-tested traditions with cutting edge technology and modern techniques, they are constantly improving what is on offer.

If you live in Montreal or Toronto, you will have the chance to experience the new Argentina in a groundbreaking wine event like never before!
