Wine Vertical Tasting in Saavedra

Iduna Weinert, director of the winery, guides this tasting of Cavas de Weinert wines from 2003, 2004, 2006 and 2007. This is a vertical tasting, meaning you’ll taste wines with a common denominator: the same label from the same region, or from the same winery, but applied to different vintages. This is an excellent opportunity to understand the evolution of the same wine as it barrel ages. There will be bread, olive oils, cheese and high quality cold cuts to accompany the delicious wine. Register here for free, with a ARS 500 per person minimum purchase at Eno Garage.

19:30- 21 hrs. | Eno Garage | Moldes 2700 | Saavedra
