Celebrate Gauchito Gil’s Malbec World Day

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.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
