Moveable Feasts is a weekly agenda in which we give you the low-down on this week’s food fairs, workshops, and pop-ups in Buenos Aires.
I know, I know. We all miss Tamx and their witty foodie recommendations. However as a fellow gordito I could not have refused the chance to follow in their steps by writing Moveable Feasts. I hope you guys and gals are ready, because this week is full of events that’ll make you party like it’s the winter holidays… wait, we actually are in Vacaciones de Invierno, so yes!
Follow me as I show you what’s cooking in Bs As this week, literally and figuratively.
Blindfolded Wine Tasting Experience at La Cava de Vittorio
If you’re like me, you’ll never miss a chance to try something new. That’s why this week, La Cava de Vittorio is hosting a unique blindfolded wine tasting event. You’ll be treated to 5 different boutique wines and some amazing pairings so that you don’t leave the place stumbling (remember kids, never drink alcohol on an empty stomach). This whole experience costs just $550 and not only do you get the chance to get a little tipsy on a Thursday afternoon, you’ll also get a 20% discount on every wine bottle you taste. Just don’t forget to make your reservations by calling this number: 4824-0647 or emailing them at: email@example.com

Wine and Cheese Tasting With a Sommelier
Well, I guess by now you’ve noticed there’s a trend in some of this week’s events and for good reason: I’m on holidays and any reason is a good reason to have some wine, beer, scotch or to be honest, whatever. I guess you guys and gals (and everybody inbetween) will still be in the mood for more wine and food so Espacio y Vinos and Sommelier en Bicicleta team up to bring you the best wine+cheese pairings of the city.
