Anuva Wines: The Company
Argentina’s wine regions attract wine lovers from the world over, who fall in love with the bountiful and unique wines produced here. One such man is Daniel Karlin, owner and operator of Anuva Wines, a wine club that offers wine tastings for visitors to Buenos Aires. Anuva – a Spanglish wordplay on the word uva (grape), is also a name in India and Russia, translated as ‘knowledge’ and ‘new beginning’ – a perfectly fitting name and mantra for this new(ish) business which boasts extensive expertise of Argentine wines.
The Wine Tasting Experience
Located in a specialist tasting room in Palermo Soho, intimate groups enjoy this wine tasting in an elegant, brightly decorated dining room. Daniel, or one of his expert team, stands at the head of the table, presenting his wines, and sharing his wealth of wine wisdom. The hand-selected, sometimes limited-edition vintage wines will expand your repertoire far beyond the ever-popular Argentine Malbec. The tasting includes six wines – two white, four red – and perfectly paired local food specialties, ranging from the expected cheese and chocolate, to mouthwatering sorbets, and an empanada (Argentine small, savory pie, usually meat-filled). Wines are served simultaneously, so guests can compare flavors. All of the wines are available for purchase, as well as subscriptions to the Anuva Wine Club (although no pressure is put on your to join the club).
Why try Argentine wines this way?
If you do not have time to tour the expansive wine regions in Argentina, an Anuva wine tasting is your best bet in Buenos Aires for learning about Argentine wines and tasting the very best of them. Host Daniel keeps guests very entertained and never lets a glass go empty. Whether a wine novice or expert, everyone is sure to learn something, or at least gain an appreciation of the fantastic wines that have made Argentina a little piece of heaven for anyone with an interest in good wine.
