***LIMITED TICKETS AT THE DOOR***
Get ready to be transported 6,000 miles south to enjoy the amazing wines of South America. Chile and Argentina are making some of the most important and revered wines in the world – all with extraordinary quality-to-value. Now in its fifth year, South American Superstars has become the largest and most important tasting of its kind in the country. Check out pictures from last years’ event at Jones.
THE DRAMATIC & HISTORIC SETTING
We are thrilled to bring the Uncorked community back to the grandeur of the stunning Fairmont Hotel high above Nob Hill. The storied Venetian Room, where Tony Bennett first sang ‘I Left My Heart In San Francisco’, provides the perfect backdrop for these wines of distinct history and undeniable quality. What better way to break up the middle of your work week than by sampling125 of the finest wines from Argentina & Chile?!
WORLD CLASS WINES
Join us as we sample over 125 top wines from virtually every important importer and distributor of South American wine. There will also be a few wines from Uruguay this year, including the hearty Tannat grape.
You will be taken on a tour of Chile’s main wine regions including the Maipo, Colchagua and Casablanca Valleys, while savoring Pinot Noir, Cabernet, Syrah, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and the wonderfully spicy and chocolately varietal Carmenère – our pick to become ‘the next Malbec’ on our shores.
Argentina’s main wine regions border Chile in the foothills of the Andes, with the Mendoza Valley being the most prominent, along with the Salta region to the North. You will try Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Bonarda, Merlot, Torrontés, Chardonnay and lots of Malbec (over 30 different kinds) – the most important grape of Argentina.
LIVE TANGO BAND & DANCERS + THE EXTRAS
A live tango band concert and dance performance by Trio Garufa will perfectly complement the wines. Smartwater will also be on hand keeping you hydrated and an artisan cheese spread will be on offer. We’ll keep the evening going with an unofficial after party at the legendary Tonga Room next door.
THE VIP OPTION
This year we’re adding a VIP preview entry option to enter a full hour before the main event at 5:30pm with exclusive access to rare library and extremely limited production reserve wines at each of the tables.
