Last month I attended a tasting of wines from Familia Rosso in Mendoza, Argentina. I was very impressed, impressed enough to organize a dinner paired with some of their wines. Who else to pair them I thought than Mariano Rivera of San Miguel’s Buenos Aires Bistro. A couple of emails later and we were on.


Empanada de bienvinida
Loma Alta Chardonnay

Grilled Provoleta cheese with housemade Argentine chorizo
Loma Alta Malbec Syrah

Grilled Romaine Lettuce with Parmesan shavings

Flank steak, asado style, with chimichurri, country style grilled veggies and lemon garlic potatoes
Familia Rosso Malbec Reserva

The dinner will be held on Tuesday, April 9 at Buenos Aires Bistro, Calle Mesones 62. Start time is 7:00 pm. The price is $1200 per person and includes service. Space is, as always, limited and the first to reply are in.

To reserve, simply email with the word “Argentina” in the subject line and tell me how many will be in your party. I’ll confirm your reservation with an email.
