Hi, I’m Santiago, owner and creator of Casa Coupage, a private wine tasting and pairing club in Buenos Aires, Argentina since 2005.
Taste, a large percentage of which depends on smell, is perhaps the most personal and untransferable human experience. Wine is a noble beverage that reaches its best expression when shared.
That’s why we created an exclusive meeting point where a personal relationship with the wine can be developed, together with people who share the same passion
Casa Coupage Virtual Tasting:
Casa Coupage Virtual Tasting is a unique activity where you can discover & interpret wine in a funny and truly personal way. An interactive, spontaneous and personal exploration of Argentine terroir. But the idea, for casual oenophiles and supertasters alike, is simply to become better acquainted with one´s own palate and have fun in the process.
We will have the pleasure of tasting together some wines that represent the soul and backbone of Argentine viticulture. We’ll start with a very aromatic and flowery Torrontés, the most famous white variety in Argentina. Then we will continue with a comparative tasting of two red wines from Mendoza, our most famous region, which will allow us to compare the aromatic expressions. We will taste a young and fruity Malbec, medium-body, easy to drink, and a blend with a little more evolution, complex and elegant.
Finally, we will do a small pairing exercise to understand how the expressions of wines vary when combined with different foods. For this exercise it is necessary to have at least one fatty stimulus (cheese), one acidic (pickles) and one bitter and salty (olives / capers).
You will need: wine and light snacks of your choice picked from a suggested list.
Ask about any typeof privete event and gifting options.
Dinner in steps with comparative tasting:
Guests will be greeted by the sommelier of the house with a refreshing glass of white wine as an opener.
Dinner will start off with a tasting of two wines. Together with these labels, guests will enjoy starters. The aim is to discover how the wines express themselves in different ways when paired with various dishes.
Afterwards, a comparative blind tasting of three distinguished red wines, will provide the opportunity to discuss blends, varietals, styles and wine evolution. These wines will be paired with the main dish.
Finally, the last wine will be presented in accompaniment of dessert.
