Argentina is noted for its beef and its signature grape, Malbec. I'm not sure how Malbec and Argentina got connected since Malbec is well known in Bordeaux as a blending grape, and in Cahors, where it is the principal grape.
All I know is that Argentina produces outstanding examples of Malbec. As we get ready for our Wine Lovers Tour to Argentina in April, I thought it would be a great practice to do some homework and try some great examples from Argentina as well as France. I had the 7 wines selected but wasn't sure of where to have the tasting.As I was considering an appropriate venue for this event, I drove by ID Brazil in West Haven which feaures a churrascaria rodizio format where the roving waitpeople go from table to table serving all you can eat barbecued meats from skewers. I thought that although it's not Argentina, Brazil is pretty close. In Argentina, Malbec and beef is the perfect pairing. We hope you agree and can join us. (For non beef eaters, they do have chicken and turkey on the menu.)
