Algodon Wine Tasting in NYC

Our wine tasting event at Union Square Wines enjoyed a great turnout. Our guests of honor from San Rafael, Mendoza included our partners at the Bombal & Aldao Winery, Camilo Aldao and his wife Luisa; as well as our terrific winemaker, Mauro Nosenzo; and also the General Manager of our Mendoza golf resort and wine hotel, Diego Coll Benegas. Camilo addressed the crowd and was very personable. As for the wine; crowd favorites, so I’m told, seemed to be the Cab/Syrah, and the French Oaked Chardonnay.  I’m particularly partial to Algodon's Bonarda, myself.

Camilo tells us that the 2008 harvest is an outstanding one and we can expect an exceptional Malbec, in particular, after its oak barrel aging. We are also moving forward with a strategy to cultivate and create the best wines Algodon has ever produced by including the utilization of the highest quality casks, optimum grape selection, harvesting by hand, and getting rid of anything that is not perfect.
