One of the best sommeliers of Argentina recommended exclusively for Buenos Aires to go 11 local brands that everybody should taste and try.
Passionate for wine, studious and perfectionist. Paz Levinson was born in Patagonia and moved to Buenos Aires to study Arts and the Sommelier Career. She was trained in restaurants in Argentina such as Restó and Nectarine; lived in China; and she has been living in Paris since 2013, where she works at a 3-star Michelin Restaurant. She came to Argentina not long ago to participate in the sommelier local championship, where she got the first prize, and to prepare a super premium wine chart for the famous La Cabrera steakhouse.
These are her suggestions:
"An exquisite, juicy wine with lots of fruit, for every day. A very representative wine of the country".
"It is an excellent malbec, concentrated, from Lujan de Cuyo, first area".
"A signature wine not to be missed, from Matías Michelini oenologist. It is produced in Gualtallary, in the Valle de Uco, a very high, rural and wild area".
"For those who prefer white wines, Juan Pablo Michelini wine is among my favorites".
"Another wine from Gualtallary, a malbec and cabernet franc blend full of purity and intensity. It smells austere, but attractive. Edgardo del Popolo is the oenologist. It is a very small project, but he developed exceptional wine".
"It is a very interesting wine among premium wines, a wine everybody talks about, that has received the best international reviews".
"Really tasty and interesting, a Semillon from Valle de Uco. Ideal with sweetbreads or starters".
"A spectacular bubbly wine among those produced in Argentina".
"Another favorite among bubbly wines".
"I wanted to mention it because it is increasingly better".
