KINGS OF MALBEC ALTOS LOS HORMIGAS WINE DINNER

Wednesday 27th September – 7.30pm

The Kensington Arms, 35-37 Stanley Road, BS6 6NP

£45

In the heart of the stunning Mendoza wine region lies a very special estate.

Established in 1995 by Alberto Antonini, a well known Tuscan winemaker,

and the young entrepreneur Antonio Morescalchi, Altos Los Hormigas

has developed into one of Argentina’s leading estates.

Pioneers of the terroir in the region, they produce some really pure wines showing

elegance and refinement that it not always captured in this area.

A biodynamic approach in the vineyard and minimal intervention in the winery are practices dictated by Altos’ philosophy to ensure the wines stay true to their place of origin.

So, this is your opportunity to try the most fascinating range of Malbecs a winery has to offer.

The enigmatic Antonio will be with us to guide you through his magnificent wines.

A three course dinner from the fabulous team at The Kensington Arms will be served alongside.

Reservation is by payment prior to the event at;

Cotham 0117 973 1620; North Street 0117 963 3331: Cargo 0117 302 0038

Spain is producing such exciting and distinctive wine at present, especially from this part of the country.  This is a great opportunity to try it at its best!
