Secrets of Argentina

You could pay a fortune to see one of Mark Oldman’s famous, “five-star” (Food & Wine), “wildly popular” (Aspen magazine) live seminars at the nation’s top food festivals or you can take a Bevinars virtual wine class for a fraction of the cost and from the comfort of your own living room. In his trademark style that Bon Appétit calls “winespeak without the geek,” award-winning author and renowned speaker Mark Oldman covers essential wine topics.


We will examine the country’s signature white dry wine, Torrontés, whose uniquely aromatic-but-dry charms may make it your new favorite white wine. And we will take a deep dive into the country’s marquee success, Malbec, discussing both everyday and special occasion versions that never fail to seduce the winter drinker. In addition to the featured wines being presented, Mark will clue you into a slew of other Argentinian beauties, from Cabernet Franc to Tempranillo.

And we will cover tasting techniques, decoding the label, new trends, and food pairings — including hearty winter fare and regional favorites such as gaucho steaks, empanadas, and chimichurri sauce.

Moreover, if you’ve ever been to one of Mark’s presentations, you know it is brimming with humor and his trademark “nuggets” of useful insider information that you won’t find anywhere else.

The cost of the class is $55 per household, and if you want to taste along with Mark, an optional Bevinars wine kit is now available to purchase at
