We had a very intimate tasting last night: one guest to be precise… But she loved the Bonarda that we served. Having never tried a Bonarda before, I enjoyed explaining the origins of the grape and it’s common charactaristics to her while seeing what foods it combined with.

Bonarda for me has always been the deal maker, along with TorrontĂ©s. It was Malbec, obviously, that got me started, and will always have that special place in my heart, but the discovery of this “other red” that Argentina does so well was key to the founding of Anuva.

So when I saw the grin and then heard the comment, “I really liked that Bonarda”, then I smiled.
