As the pylloxera plague destroyed vineyards in Europe in the late 1800s and early 1900s, winemakers, grape growers and merchants emigrated en masse from Spain, France and Italy to South America to start over again. There, they used their knowledge to map out the best vineyards in this immense “virgin” land and their winemaking know-how to turn the grapes they grew into some of the best wines in the world. Join us for this virtual visit to the critically-acclaimed vineyards of Mendoza in Argentina as well as cross over the Andes to discover the hidden gems of Chile. In this relaxed and interactive hour-long presentation, you will learn all about the terroir and the grape varieties that have put these countries on the wine map. Free and open to all wine lovers, invite your friends and buy the wines in advance to taste along!
