Master the World Wine Tasting: The New World - Southern Hemisphere - Kit One

Argentina with Professor Timothy Buzinski

This kit offers an exciting tour of Argentina’s wine regions and varieties. Highlighted by a pair of wines produced from the Mendoza region with Argentina’s signature grape, Malbec, this kit also includes several varieties that showcase the many exciting terroirs of Argentina. Grapes like Bonarda which has a long history in Argentina are complimented by new varieties and regions like Pinot Noir from Patagonia and Torrontes from Salta. Perhaps the biggest surprise in this kit will be the overall excellence of the Puramum Chardonnay from heralded winemaker Pepe Galante.

Please note that this course is only available for purchasers of the accompanying tasting kit.
