The evening was co-hosted by Arion Wine Company under the slogan, Viva la Copa de Viña de Argentina!
The culinary affair took off with a Goat Cheese Pizzetta which was paired with Alamos Torrontes Mendoza, and followed by a classic Salmon with Hollandaise sauce, escorted by Bodegas Salentein Chardonnay Uco Valley, as the first appetizer. The second appetizer featured Jumbo Scallop & Shrimp over black laghitarra pasta with shiitake sauce, complemented by Bodegas Salentein Pinot Noir Uco Valley, both elegant and refined wines.
The main course, Prime Rib Pincho with potato wedges matched the Bodega Catena Zapata Malbec. Argentina’s famous Malbec also escorted the bountiful Cheese Platter.
Ventanas del Mar restaurant had recently launched the tradition of monthly wine and food tastings. While the first dinner a few weeks ago enjoyed a modest attendance, the popularity of the evening grew instantaneously, resulting in a sold out affair for the third edition of the tasting.
Educating and entertaining guests, the culinary team of Ventanas del Mar in conjunction with Arion Wine, made casual fun presentations with each course describing the wine and elaborate on the delicious food preparations.
The tasty and appetizing night, paired with a great selection of flavorful wines will preset another edition, with a different theme, at the end of August.
