Vintage Import’s Lee Kuehn presents the Bodega Benegas Wines from Argentina on Friday, October 30 at The Carlton Restaurant! Argentinian wines captured the attention of Wine Advocate’s Robert Parker in his August 2009 cover story! He hailed the value and strength of these offerings and singled out the Bodega Benegas wines by giving 7 of their offerings scores of greater than 90 points! Come sample two Malbecs and some wonderfully blended reds paired with great cuisine!
