Catena Zapata Wine Tasting at RIS
On Saturday afternoon, October 6th from 1pm-3pm...
We will be pouring 9 of the best wines that Catena Zapata has to offer. These wines are very hard to find and a tasting of this caliber is simply unheard of. RIS will create delicious Argentine food that will pair beautifully with these big, bold Burgundian Style wines.
Founded in 1902, Argentina’s Bodega Catena Zapata is known for its pioneering role in resurrecting Malbec and in discovering extreme high altitude terroirs in the Andean foothills of Mendoza.The family’s Adrianna Vineyard at almost 5,000 feet elevation has been called the Grand Cru of South America.
Recently, they earned the first perfect 100 point score for any Argentine wine from Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate, on not one, but TWO of their wines.
