Vine Connections & Cream Wine Company Present
"In Salta, every road is curving, and every few miles the landscape seems to change from one sort of geological formation and color to another...It's a place where vineyards are lined with hills and cacti, and wild goats and horses share the streets with pedestrians and old cars." - Laura Catena
At an elevation of 4,900 to 9,900 feet, compared to a 3,000 feet average in Mendoza, Salta has the highest elevation vineyards in the world. 25 wineries craft wine in this extreme dessert climate with alluvial soils, intense sun exposure and less than eight inches of rain annually. They represent 1% of the total Argentine wine production. Salta is truly one of the most unique wine growing regions on the planet.
On May 21st, from 2:30-5:00pm, we'll have a walk around tasting at the Cream wine lounge where you'll be able to discover 20+ wines from the highest vineyards in the world. Four of the top producers from the region will be in town to discuss with you the impact altitude has on their wines.
This is a fantastic opportunity to learn about this new Argentine region and the wines Salta has to offer.
Tasting is from 2:30-5:00pm
