Looking back at this time of the year, great memories start to flood back to one of our best and most fun events The Wine Ladies created for our guests. We do have an adventurous and fun loving group of friends and followers. Grape Stomping Mad About Malbec event. (2013)
Beautifully pedicured feet were deep purple when we left that night! Fabulous Malbecs, great food and literally so many of the guests, great sports!  They took off their shoes and jumped in and stomped the grapes! What a night, we have to do it again!

Susanne’s Wine Pick

This Malbec has aromas of plum and blueberry with spice and peppery notes. Dry with good aroma replays. Structured with soft tannins and a solid fruity finish.

Las Barrancas is in a stunning location with premium quality soils, ideal climate and environment, located in Mendoza, in the district of Maipu within the Mendoza River highland. In the area, at around 750 meters above sea level, more than 400 hectares belong to Pascual Toso.

It is a heterogeneous terroir, an uneven piece of land going down 7 meters, where stretch soils with bare rock in which grapes stand up with all its quality, to deeper soils with green coverage.

Las Barrancas possess excellent conditions for climatic agriculture, with warm days and fresh nights, low humidity relative and high heatstroke what is translated in vineyards with excellent quality of fruits and sanity. The water for irrigation comes from the snow of the Andes mountain trough the main River of the county, “Mendoza River”. Organic matter is very scarce due to the quick decomposition it goes through because rains are not heavy and there is intensive cultural activity. Although the soils are of similar origin, various textures may be found in small areas.

Join us every Wednesday for Women, Wine, Wednesday’s with Jazz at the Anchor Bar for 1/2 price wines by the glass and the bottle as selected by us, all night jazz and prizes

Rebel Wine 2012 The Show Malbec

Maybe not the most expensive Malbec.

Certainly good bang-for-your-buck wine. Rebel Wine 2012 The Show Malbec is produced by Three Thieves which is owned by Rebel Wines out of California.  Despite this, The Show Malbec is made in Mendoza, Argentina home of many great Malbecs.  85% of this wine is from Lujan de Cuyo and the other 15% is from Uco Valley.  This blend of fruit from high elevation vineyards in the Uco Valley and Lujan de Cuyo result in a mix of ripe fruit and savoury notes. A great match for grilled steak or game!

As reviewed on The Wine Ladies weekly radio show Taking Life One Sip At A Time

On this show The Wine Ladies explore the country of Peru and its capital Lima, regarded as one of the gastronomic capitals of the world. From the huge bio diversity of the landscape including the coastal region, the Andean region and the Amazon comes an incredible fusion cuisine. You’ll also discover Pisco,  Peru’s national drink, a grape spirit, a wonderful elixir that is made with grapes from vast, green vineyards that flourish in the heart of the arid deserts of Peru. This traditional spirit dates back hundreds of years and is the new rising star at the bar! Pisco Sour anyone? Peru a land of gastronomy, spectacular landscape, incredible people and of course Machu Picchu!
