As you might know, Harvest season in wine country is a combination of pure excitement and organized chaos. There is not much time for anything, but to make sure that the grapes are being picked at their prime and that they make it unharmed to the winery as soon as possible. We love the energy in wine country during this time of the year, but as you can imagine it’s a hard time to catch up with the winemakers and the winery owners. Fortunately, for us we had an amazing surprise when Ariel Angelini, Casa Petrini’s Winemaker, decided to guide us through a tasting of their just harvested Chardonnay.

In the land of Malbec, this boutique winery in the breathtaking Uco Valley, is bravely leading the GSM movement in Argentina. Walking their 17 acre estate vineyard and experiencing the rocky and alluvial soils in which it’s planted, it became clear why Bodega Corazón del Sol and it’s owner Dr. Revana are so keen in making world class GSM wines from this property. Dr. Revana is no stranger to the wine world as he is also the owner of Revana Family Vineyard in Napa and of Alexana Winery in Oregon’s Willamette Valley.

Guided by Chef Lucas and Chef Javier we had the opportunity to learn some new kitchen tricks while helping prepare an authentic Argentinian Asado.
