0800-VINO wine tasting in Buenos Aires


Wine tasting, malbec

I recently was lucky enough to experience a wine tasting at 0800-VINO in Buenos Aires, probably the highlight of my stay in Argentina so far. With a group of friends I wanted to experience a range of great wines from across Argentina and learn something about wine - so we pitched up at the 0800-vino cellar, the owner-sommelier Nigel Tollerman kitted us out with ponchos for the cold in his cellar, gave us a tasting class, and we started tasting. The Carmelo Patti Cabernet Sauvignon was especially great, as was the San Pedro de Yacochuya from Salta and a really delicate Chacra Pinot Noir from Rio Negro. One and a half hours ended up turning into four, with Nigel bringing out a nifty "Aromas Kit" the help us train our noses. Nigel is a mine of wine-knowledge, he consults to Francis Ford Coppola who stores his wines in the cellar, and is a great guy. We then headed off to a local steakhouse in Palermo recommended by Nigel, best fillet steak I've ever had. They also deliver during the evenings anywhere in BA for no extra charge within the hour, absolutely brilliant idea.
