An interesting idea – get a bunch of your best customers down to a tasting to root out their favourite wine; then list it. The tastings are blind with a broad range of consumer palates and expertise in wine tasting the result is bound to be a ‘crowd pleaser’. As it was the winner at the Argentina session was a Malbec, not in my favourite list, for I was one of the tasters, but it received the highest number of votes.
The winning wine was Huarpe Wines, Taymente Malbec 2010; sadly now sold out.
I also attended as ‘official photographer'; this is one of my favourite shots of the day.
