We are quickly establishing a reputation as the place to go for wine tasting in Buenos Aires. Last night, a group of Ph.D. students from Cornell accompanied me for 5 wines from different regions of Argentina that tempted and tantalized.

As usual, our chat revolved around wine to begin with, the methods of making sparking white, Mendoza Malbec, what is a Bonarda, and why limited production wines. And then we got into functional groups, politics and where to go to eat the best beef in Buenos Aires. I made a couple of recommendations for lesser known places that are a bit more Porteño and less touristy.

Then I sent them a case of Torrontés and Malbec to bring back to New York with them. I hope to see them there!
