Sip Your Way Through Argentina At Vino Bello
Courtesy Vino Bello, 636 SW 152nd St – F, Burien, (206) 244-VINO:
This Saturday, April 5th, from Noon-8pm, Vino Bello wil be hosting a tasting of wines from Argentina:
Argentina is one of the worldâ€™s largest wine-producing countries. The climate of Argentina is similar to the Andes and it is this similarity that supports the Argentinean wine industry. Argentina is mainly an arid landscape that profits from irrigating waters off the mountains. Argentinaâ€™s warmer inland region encourages vine growth down the entire length of the country.
One of the vital aspects to growing quality wine grapes here is altitude, with vineyards planted at 2,000 and 3,000 feet to take advantage of the cooler temperatures. Argentine wines are made from grapes such as traditional Chardonnay, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and also varieties like Tempranillo, Bonarda, Barbera, TorrontÃ©s and Malbec.
Noon-8pm: Argentina wine tasting, $10
