It’s wine o’clock at Gaucho: a taste of Northern Argentina comes to Manchester


Contrary to popular belief, wine tastings aren’t just for wine buffs, though you might become one after sampling a few.

Possessed with the knowledge, for instance, that Malbec wines almost always have a bright magenta rim, you’re likely to be overcome with the desire to share this titbit at future social gatherings. It probably won’t make you the coolest person in the room, but when people want wine recommendations, they’ll come to you first. And that’s a plus.

Gaucho are hosting a Wines of The North tasting next month when they’ll be taking you on a tantalising taste journey through the regions of Argentina – Cafayate, Yocochuya, Molinos and Cachi.

The following wines will be on offer:

Seleccion G Torrontes to start (white)
Colome de terruno Malbec (red)
Colome Lote Especial el erenal Malbec (red)
Probeta Malbec (red)
Domingo Molina Mortero Malbec (red)
Vallisto Malbec (red)
RD Davilos to finish (red)

It’s set to be a fun and informative night with Gaucho’s sommelier Christian Draganof on hand to answer your every wine wondering.

There’ll be no noses in the air (they’ll be stuck inside a wine glass) and, at £25, it’s pretty good value for money, too.

If you’re feeling a little peckish afterwards, satisfying that craving for meat shouldn’t be too difficult in one of Manchester’s finest steakhouses.

This is the perfect evening for anyone who fancies learning about wine and, more importantly, tasting it.
