26 March we had the honour to welcome a wine champion from Argentina – Ms Celeste Pesce.
This was made possible thanks to the importer of Escorihuella Gascon in Slovakia, ILT s.r.o. from Bratislava. Short visit to Košice, wine tasting at Villa Cassa in the evening, departure to Banska Bystrica the next day,
another tasting there and then departure to Argentina… This was the busy schedule of Ms Celeste.
Charming young lady, who works for the oldest winery in Mendoza, studied oenology in Italy and now gives the character and seal to Argentina’s icons such as President’s Blend (cuvee of 2 famous red grape varieties, originally prepared in 50’s of the last century for the President Peron and his wife Evita) and the great Don – that is a 100% Malbec, which is the flagship wine of the winery.
We tasted 12 wines in total, each prepared a different style. Everyone found their favourite, but we enjoyed the reds the most.
Those of you who are interested, may try many of the presented wines at our wine bar!
We support the authentic.
