MELBOURNE & SYDNEY | There are some things in this world that are worth celebrating, perhaps even devoting an entire day to, and if you’re a wine lover, Gauchito Gil’s Malbec World Day might just be one of them.

Gauchito Gil's World Malbec Day

But we know what you’re thinking: how am I going to celebrate this Argentinian wine when I’m in Melbourne or Sydney? Well, we might just have the solution for that too, because on April 17 for Melbourne and April 23 for Sydney, you can get the chance to try many many fine Malbec wines, partake in some tango dancing (although we’ll admit your participation may depend on how progressed you are with your ‘tasting’) and enjoy some fine Argentinian food thanks to folks like Piqueos and Casa Ciucco in Melbourne and Porteño in Sydney.

There’s even an award (for Melbourne celebrations only) for the best empanada called the ‘Golden Empanada’, which looks exactly how it sounds and is judged by both event goers and professional critics.

Tickets are $50.00 and include a free wine glass and all the wines you can taste. In fact, the only thing the ticket doesn’t include is a public holiday to celebrate the wine. Best to start campaigning for that now.
