Originally a common grape in Bordeaux, France ... Malbec has lost popularity as one of the "fab-five" in the blends there. Fortunately, it's found other places to flourish. Malbec has increased its status in the French region of Cahors, a bit southeast of Bordeaux, where it creates distinctive wines that now require 70% of the variety. The grape's made an even more prosperous home in the burgeoning wine region of Argentina. In fact, Argentineans have adopted Malbec as their national grape! Malbec has hit its stride – the grape produces spicy wines reminiscent of blackberries and chocolate, with a velvety texture.
An informal and educational food and wine event for everyone interested in expanding their knowledge and love of fine wines. We will cover some basic topics relating to wine appreciation. Taste and compare several Malbec wines from around the world. Including, France, Argentina and the United States. This is the perfect place for wine beginners to learn about wine and why it can be a life long, enjoyable experience. Experienced wine lovers can also benefit by using this evening to brush up on their wine knowledge and tasting skills. There is always something to learn about wine.
The Beanery Cafe will serve an assortment of appetizers with the wines. All wines are served in Riedel stemware. No product purchase is required. You do not have to be a member of the Northern Lights Wine Club to attend any wine event at the Beanery Cafe.
