Join the Tastings team as we dive into one of the most recognisable grape varieties in the world.
We'll cover the properties of this wonderful grape; explaining its unique characteristics and breaking down the flavours before exploring the different styles of malbec from around the world.
Starting in the west of France; we'll begin with the original home of malbec; exploring wines from the South West as well as the more northernly Loire (where Malbec is known as côt) before setting sail on a voyage around the world to explore where it has planted roots in more recent times. Of course, no malbec event would be complete without finishing off in the country that made the variety a household name – Argentina.
We'll be tasting our way around the world, but you don't need any wines to enjoy this event; just a thirst for learning a little more about the world of malbec. Should you wish to join us with some of the styles we will be talking about, the wines we will be tasting are below:
