Intro to South America @ San Telmo 6th July 7pm

July 6, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm


Already sold? Scroll to the bottom of this page for booking details.

When it comes to South American wine do you know your Bonarda from their Carmenere (they are both grape varieties)? Or do you just know you kinda like the wines and want to explore further? Maybe with some really amazing food at one of the hottest venues in Melbourne…

Here is your chance

At the wonderful venue San Telmo you’ll drink your way through the two main wine producing countries in South America – Chile and Argentina. Together we’ll explore the ins and outs of the native and imported varieties. Oh and we’ll enjoy a bloody good Malbec or two.

We’ll be joined by a presenter who is knowledgeable, articulate and has been working in South America for many years to find all these great wines.

San Telmo will provide a first class and delicious education on the food of South America (it will be worth the price of admission alone).

Don’t miss out…

Introduction to South America @ San Telmo. Arrive at 7pm. $170 per head. Bring a pen, come hungry!
