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.

BOTTLE SHOP CONCEPTS
Bottle Shop Concepts is an event-based company hellbent on creating fun, engaging and meaningful events around our favourite thing, drinks. Especially wine.
Steering clear of traditional wine marketing methods, we cast a broader net to collect inspiration from popular culture, music, design and basically anything that captures the imagination.
We think that learning about wine is most effectively done in the same way you drink it: socially. By making wine education fun, a conversation rather than a lecture, what you pick up is bound to stick.
In short, we take the wank out of wine.
