Dark, easy to love, and even easier to drink, the Malbec grape has found untold popularity in Argentina, while many seem to overlook its origins in France.
Today, February 25th, we will be tasting four Malbecs, all from France.
We will explore two from its home in the foothills of the Pyrenees in southern France, and two from the Loire Valley in the north, where the grape has been grown for centuries under the local name Côt.
The tasting is from 12noon-3pm and is free for friends.
