Pablo Piccolo, Brand Ambassador for Catena Zapata, will join us from Mendoza, Argentina to lead a tasting of Catena’s most coveted and world-renowned Malbec wines. Along the way he will tell the fascinating story of the Malbec grape, from its origins in Bordeaux, France where it escaped the phylloxera plague, to its new home in Argentina in the mid-19th century. Fueled by the Catena family’s passion for Malbec and their commitment to research, their historic Adrianna vineyard is considered South America’s grand cru. Pablo will share some of the winery’s most acclaimed Malbecs from the high-altitude Adrianna, and guests will have the unique opportunity to taste the bold flavors and spicy aromatics of the ultimate expression of Argentina Malbec.
