Winemaker’s Dinner: Icons of Argentina with Trapiche & El Esteco

Wednesday, September 25 | 6-9PM | The Stubborn Goat Gastropub* | $140 (tax & tip included - Ticket Atlantic fees extra) | SOLD OUT

Join winemaker German Buk for an evening of exceptional food and wine, exploring two iconic wineries of Argentina:

Trapiche: With more than 130 years of experience, Trapiche has earned its place as a pioneering brand of Argentinean wine. Dedicated to sustainable practices in its winemaking, Trapiche follows a fundamental principle of “constant innovation and diversity”. Its Florentine-style winery, in the heart of Mendoza, has become an iconic symbol of the strength and history of the Argentinean wine industry.

El Esteco: When people talk about Argentinean wine, Malbec and the region of Mendoza always come first. Not many people are aware of the existence of the Calchaqui Valley - a hidden gem located in the rustic province of Salta in the Northwest of Argentina – where you’ll find the El Esteco. This historic winery develops award-winning wines that have gained international recognition and positioned El Esteco as the icon of the Calchaqui Valley.
