Wink writes: "The wine industry of Argentina has come a long way since my first visit 16 years ago and has made really great strides in the past 3 or 4 years.
"Although we have two exemplary white wines, our tasting will be dominated by the six reds, four of which include Argentina's signature variety Malbec - two of them are high-level blends.
"I've tried to select wines from a few wineries that are fairly new to the UK market too, though you might recognise a couple of the names."

In between wines and stories about Argentina, Wink will also give us an update on how to plan a private wine tour with her Wine Travel Guides website - where the guides cover, who's writing - and what the blog is all about. If you press her, she might even share some insights into the brave new world of Social Media, which she says takes up a large chunk of her day these days.
