Next Saturday, the 18th, Katie Finn will join us representing Argentine producer, Fincas Patagonicas, the producer of the Zolo line of wines. The Ortiz family, which owns the winery, selects grapes from estate vineyards throughout the different key regions of Mendoza. The purpose of the winery’s Zolo classic line is to create a family of fruit-forward, great value wines, which can be enjoyed with a wide range of food or by themselves. Located at various altitudes, each of these terroirs provides a different expression of fruit and varietal concentration. The week after, on the 25th, Paul Chatterton will return to complete the excursion through the Gallo properties but this time focusing on wineries the company owns out of the US. Other wineries, importers and distributors are lining up for future events and for your pleasure.
