A TRULY MODERN
WINE TASTING EXPERIENCE.
NO CONVENTION. NO SNOBBERY. NO ELITISM.
Instead, this is a wine tasting that has the country's spirit and culture at its heart. "Cambalache: One Night in Argentina" gets you up close and personal with some of the best bits of this unique and exciting nation; the wine, the food, the art, the music, the language and much more. Our "Cambalache" takes place at MC Motors, in Dalston, one of the East-end's incredible warehouse spaces that evokes the retro glamour that is ever-present in Argentina.
As well as 150 wines from over 25 top wineries there will be an array of quintessentially Argentine experiences including:
Make mine a Fernet Coca
A bartender’s favourite, Fernet Branca is an Italian aperitif containing 27 herbs that the Argentines are obsessed with. Come and see if your nose can distinguish them all in a unique masterclass.
