A Night of Wine, Tango & Argentina
Last week in New York City, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Argentine Republic & the Consulate General of Argentina celebrated their cultural heritage. Hosted by Jose Luis Perez-Gabilondo, Consul General of Argentina, the night emphasized 2 of the nation’s facets- tango & wine.
With a room illuminated in fiery red + blazing orange, guests were entertained with sounds of live tango by the renown Mederos Trio while making new friends over glasses of signature Argentine wines, Malbec & Torrontes. Six wineries were represented- Luigi Bosca, Trapiche, Michael Torino, Alamos, Rutini, Zorzal- and the Consul General exclaimed that the United States had become the 5th largest importer to Argentine wines, making it quite the accomplishment. As tango legend Rodolfo Mederos intensely played the accordion & the music escaped to make the dancers sway across the stage, nothing else mattered in the world but Argentina. | Giuseppe
