Wine School – Argentina and Beef
Wednesday 3rd June – 630 to 8pm
Argentina has probably seen the biggest growth area in the world of fine wine in recent years.

We will explore the range of wines that Argentina produces, featuring Malbec as their pinnacle of achievement. Daniel Galmiche will also prepare a couple of beef cuts for us to pair to the wines being opened.
