CAMBALACHE - ONE NIGHT IN ARGENTINA is not your typical swirling and sipping event. This is about invoking all the senses & getting a taste of the passion, complexity & contradictions of this wonderful country and its wines.
This is about the true Argentina.
In one immersive evening's experience:
Taste over 120 of the finest wines from 26 of Argentina's top wineries. (To celebrate World Malbec Day*)
Try out the offbeat art of matching wine with music, hosted by eminent professors Barry Smith, and Charles Spence from Oxford and London Universities, who are both specialists on sound and taste interaction. Charles Spence has most recently worked with the likes of UK celebrity chef, Heston Blumenthal.
Enjoy an array of authentic Buenos Aires street food courtesy of Sur Empanada.
Sample the spirit of the 1940's with historical cocktails from Malbec House.
Witness three of Argentina's most talented and cutting edge graffiti artists - Cabaio Stencil, Roma and Tec - live in action.
Learn street slang that could rustle up a heap of trouble in downtown Buenos Aires with James Bracken, the author of the cult book Che Boludo.
