ALMAlbec food and wine festival
The ALMAlbec food pairing festival took place in the occasion of World Malbec Day (April 17) in Buenos Aires and Mendoza, with the goal to position Mendoza as the main gastronomic destination in Argentina. The festival also aimed at educating the public and the restaurants’ service personnel on basic aspects such as the history of the vine, its basic characteristics, production and best suggested pairings.
Bodegas de Argentina supported this action and accompanied it with the Wine in Moderation message.
The initiative which promoted a menu paired with Malbec in restaurants and wineries throughout Mendoza also gave the opportunity to participants to choose among a series of events organised during the festival among which classes, debates, tastings, tours, mini fairs, tastings and cultural events around the topic of Malbec.
