Argentinian Inspired Evening at DCC

Don and I love to try new wines, especially on half-priced bottle night at the club. So whenever there's a chance to dine on a Wednesday night, we head straight there.

The menu has changed at the DCC and many new items are on our list to try in the new year during the winter season. One wine that we have never tried is an Argentinian wine from a small Mendoza winery. Walter Bressia began his winery in 2003 with the purpose of selling limited and personal batches of wine and grappa of the highest quality.

At Bodega Bressia, they have the right technology to make all their wines. The necessary quantity of French and American oak barrels allow the design of a hands-on style and very balanced oak concentration. The oak aging is done in a subterranean cellar located 6 meters below the surface and houses 360 barrels.

This is the wine we chose from Bodega Bressia. It is a blend of Semillon and Chardonnay and was awarded 90 points from the Wine Advocate.
