Argentina with Nick Smith of Cupari Wines

Nick Smith of specialist Argentinian wine importer Cupari Wines will be presenting a selection of their wines, sourced from some of the best boutique wineries in Argentina.

With vineyards located at altitude in the hot, dry climate of the foothills of the Andes, these wines are produced organically and in a sustainable manner, and are a true reflection of the beautiful landscape in which they are grown. Cupari Wines import direct from independent, family run wineries in Mendoza, so their wine can’t be found on any supermarket shelves.

From being a nation that produced wine only for domestic consumption, in the last 20 years Argentinian wines have gained a worldwide reputation for quality and individuality. As well as showing us examples of Argentina’s signature varieties – Torrontes and Malbec – Nick will also be pouring some interesting blends and wines from lesser known and unexpected grape varieties.
