Seminar: Mad About Malbec presented by Catena Zapata
Join Sommelier and Brand Ambassador Marika Vida-Arnold as you taste through the most fascinating features that define the various Malbec wines produced by the world-famous Argentinian Bodega, Catena Zapata. In this seminar you will be treated to six different Malbec from the Bodega Catena Zapata range of wines. They are all 100% Malbec, but from various vineyards, and there is a wide variety in price. Those prices range from the $20 range up to the $100 range, and points in between.
Catena Zapata has been making quality wine for several generations and produce the signature Malbec from a variety of vineyards in the region, at various elevations and with different soil types. Their wines provide a clear example of the fact that all Malbecs are not equal, or even similar. Getting to evaluate those differences and appreciate where they come from is one of the most fascinating aspects of wine tasting.
