Event Details

WHO IS GAUCHITO GIL?

He is an Argentine Robin Hood-like character who stole from the rich to give to the poor. As a result, he’s gained somewhat of a following and in wonderful Argentinean twist of fate, he is effectively known as the patron saint of thieves.

Malbec World Day has traditionally been dominated by Argentina as Mendoza really is the spiritual home of the variety. With many great examples available in Australia, we are ‘stealing’ some of the lime light and plan of celebrating both Argentinean and Australian examples of the grape. 


MALBEC WORLD DAY

Come join us at Ormond Hall for a celebration of Argentina's most famed grape including examples from Australia.  This is red wine loving heaven!

Add to this we'll have empanadas for you to eat from some of Melbourne's best Argentinean/South American restaurants and we want you to vote for your favourite one.  The winner will receive the 'GOLDEN EMPANADA' trophy which will be annouced towards the end of the night.  Yes, a golden empanada.  

Expect to see the guys from Piqueos, San Telmo, Huxtable, Bellota and El Alamo serving up these tasty treats

Add to this there will be live tango shows, over 80 different types of Malbec on tasting and more!
