In our first segment we will look at Argentina as a wine producing country, look at the history, its roots and where it is today. We’ll also explore not only the success story of Malbec but also Argentina’s other wines, we’ll also learn more about its culture, from the Argentine gaucho, to the asado, to the Argentine Tango.
Joining us to start the conversation Monica Ralphs, the Founder of her PR company WineSpeak, Monica has been working with the wines of Argentina for almost 10 years, she is the authority on everything Argentinean,
Listen to Monica Ralphs at 5:00 minutes in the show.
We shift our focus next to one wine producer in particular. This winery is one of the oldest and most prestigious wine producers in Argentina and is quickly becoming one of the leading quality wine brands from the country, with Robert Parkers Wine Advocate awarding 90 points to their most recent Limited Edition Malbec.The winery is Pasqual Toso, and our guest Julian Orti, Export Director to tell all in our second segment.
And finally, so many are seduced by and drawn to this beautiful country. To close off the show we’ll welcome back, he’s a favorite returning guest of ours, Dr. Gary Glassman. Dr Glassman @DrGaryGlassman is an endodontist to be specific, but also a wine lover and proud co-owner of a vineyard located in heart of the “Tiera de Malbec” Lujan de Cuyo,
in Mendoza. The winery is Los Flaneurs and Gary will join us to talk about his journey to fulfilling a dream in wine and also give us a few tips on wine and oral health, and it’s good news, so be sure to stay tuned.
And as a side note... This year, I Susanne got to complete one of my "bucket list" dreams and learned the Argentine Tango. I performed it for charity raising almost $13,000 for the Community Foundation of Mississauga in their Dancing With Mississauga Stars event. What a thrill!!! Here is my Argentine Tango! Enjoy!
