I love it when people go away from Anuva wine tastings satisfied. Our Hom Espumante and young Malbec seemed to be the winners of the evening. Hom Espumante never ceases to amaze me. For a wine club that specializes in Argentine wine, we never though, during our planning and research, that we should include a sparkling white. Man are we happy we did. We are currently sold out of Hom and have more being exported as we speak. But even that won’t be enough to satisfy our customers.

I keep getting more and more feedback about the fact that it is so hard to find a wine tasting in Buenos Aires. It seems like Argentina has neglected to bring this major part of its culture to “Capital Federal” (as the Argentines say). So when people search online and find Anuva and our wine tastings in Buenos Aires, that makes us all the more happy.

A big part of the reason why Anuva decided to bring wine tastings to Buenos Aires was that we felt that many tourists who didn’t have the chance to make it to Mendoza still wanted to taste wine from Argentina. We were right. Many toursits only have 3 or 4 days in Argentina all together, which is unfortunate because there are so many things they miss about the country. But, Anuva tries to add one more thing to the mix for them.

Our guests from Wisconsin are cetainly making the most of their time here in Buenos Aires. They told me that they had already made their obligatory visits to the more touristy restaurants and were looking for something more authentically Argentine. I recommended several different things. The one that most appealed to them seemed to be Los Inmortales, a well-known pizza joint in Buenos Aires. They had already had their fill of beef and were unaware that pizza was such a major part of Argentine culture.

I await their comments on how the “fugazzetta rellena” ended up going down. (It’s a carmalized onion pizza with lots of mozzarella).

For those of you who are thinking of coming to Buenos Aires (to taste wine with Anuva, ha), please be sure to reserve a meal for pizza while you are here. You will be missing something if not.
