It’s great when total strangers walk into a wine tasting that you are offering and laugh at your first joke. It really takes the edge off. Otherwise you gotta go straight to the wine. And stick to the wine. In many senses.

But this lovely couple from San Francisco, who had just visited El Calafate, Perito Moreno, and as far south as Torres del Paine really made my job easy.

The requests for the evening were Mendoza Malbec. Naiara Malbec and especially Cavagnaro Reserve Malbec were definitely hits but I’m glad that our paid got to try Torrontés as well since that ended up going over very well also.
