Stellar South American wines at Alibi’s Fine Wine and Art Event

Due in part to the success of Alibi’s first wine event, Swirl, Swish and Swallow, which created quite a stir among beer and wine aficionados around the city, many wineries that heard we were planning a second event (Alibi’s Fine Wine and Art EventApril 6, 2012 at Hyatt Regency Downtown) immediately came on board to offer samplings for our charity fundraising gala.

Of course we have a huge assortment of breweries returning such as Oskar Bluesthat garnered attention with their Old Chub offering and the immense assortment of free schwag they gave awayas well as Ska, Anderson Valley, New Belgium, Sierra Blanca and New Mexico’s own Marble, La Cumbre and Blue Heron breweries.

Among all the products that will be available to sample, some of the most impressive are in the wine lineup offered by TGIC Importers, who won Wine Importer of the Year last year from Wine Enthusiast Magazine (the equivalent of an Oscar in the wine biz). TGIC, which specializes in South American wines, which are quite the rage today, will be offering most of the wines in their portfolio for sampling.

You can taste their fabulous Argentine and Chilean offerings that are among the best in the industry, not only due to the excellence of the wines themselves, but also due to the incredible dollar value these wines present. TGIC’s flagship wines are from Montes Winery out of Chile, and include the fabulous Montes M, Folly, Purple Angel, Alpha and Cherub Rose. Also from Chile, they will sample the lineup from Santa Ema winery, which are all outstanding.

TGIC’s Argentinean wines are stunning, beginning with Achaval Ferrer Winery, which is one of the most exclusive and pricey labels in the industry. For those not in the know, Argentinean wine makers have managed to take grapes such as Malbec and make out-of-this-world juice with a grape that was until recently considered worthless except for blending. Torrontes, a grape used for making super aromatic and refreshing whites, is native to Argentina and considered a gem among experts and will be among the wines TGIC will offer samples of. They also will offer products from wineries such as Pascual Toso, Norton, Kaiken, and Che Gaucho.

If you are a wine aficionado, you are probably aware that these wines are not to be missed and if you are an amateur or dilettante and decide to attend this benefit for Wemagination, you will soon find out that these are all solid wines that you will most likely rank among your favorites.
