Harvest 'Argentinian Style'

Harvest 'Argentinian Style'

So after 3 years of incredible times working on harvest and in the wineries of Napa and Oregon, this year it's time to head a long way South. It's another beautiful day down here in San Rafael, Mendoza, Argentina. A big thanks to head wine maker Mauro Nosenzo, for the last week teaching me all things, picking, pressing, ageing and blending, the Argentinian way, certainly very different.

Everything is done by hand, even the labelling and everything right here at Algodon Wines. It's also great to be in a town still respecting a 4 hour siesta!! They are making some seriously good Cabs, Chardonnay, Cabernet Franc and of course Malbec. My particular favourite, the superb Malbec blend called Pima. For a bargain try the Bonarda, a less well known grape but equally great with a good piece of rib eye straight off the grill.

A good selection of their wines are available from Mike at Wine Alley, currently Red is stocking the Bonarda but a lot more soon. Ok, back to the grind, more tasting and Siesta await, I'm too old for picking grapes in this heat!!

Happy drinking! Dave

A word from Red...

Hello Everyone,


I hope you're all enjoying the summer and some good food, drinks and wine wherever you are. Just a quick note to let you know about some great nights coming up at our little Red Group for the rest of the year. August 28th is our final and biggest Sunday Brunch of the summer with tables and chairs outside for Seafront Sunday, live music + DJs on the balcony and with a Bank Holiday Monday to follow, £5 Mojito madness will run late in to the night. Rosso will also be open for an evening of pizza and Tinto will be offering its usual great gins, tapas and wine.

At the beginning of October the Red cocktail bar will be closing for a week for refurbishment, we are hoping to push the standard of drinks and service to the next level with hundreds of new spirits, a brand new cocktail list and stunning new decor to welcome you back! 

We have two fantastic wine pairing dinners for the year. The first is on the 19th October in association with Sommelier Wine and one of our favourite Masters of Wine Michael Palij MW. Michael kindly showed me round VinItaly a few years ago and has an amazing passion, particularly for Italian wines. He will be introducing the wines throughout the night to match a four course dinner created by Christophe! Price is 67.50pp. On the 22nd November we will be holding a superb last pairing dinner of the year to get us all in to the Christmas spirit. We will be serving canapés in the newly decorated bar and serving an fine wine pairing 4 course 'Anything but France' Dinner. So for all you Francophiles out there come and challenge yourself to enjoy some great wine from around the world matched perfectly again with some great food from Christophe. Price will be £75 pp.

The final Sunday brunch of the year will be Sunday 4th December with all the usual chaos of Christmas.

Talking of Christmas, please don't hesitate to enquire about our party menus for both Red, Rosso and Tinto. All venues are available for private hire and remember the cocktail bar is available for private lunches at no extra cost.

Lastly thanks for all your support for Tinto, it's been an incredible success, thanks to the staff in there for making it what it is. Who knew we all liked Gin that much!!!

Enjoy the rest of the summer and see you soon!

All at Red, Rosso and Tinto x
