Argentineans don't stomp their grapes, they dance atop them. With today's side deal, you can taste the tango. For $25, you get a ticket to the Black Door Argentine wine-tasting rumpus at the Austin location of Max's Wine Dive. On Saturday, March 6, from 1 p.m.–4 p.m., the swanky dive will feature 25 Argentine wines of 11 different grapes and blends, accompanied by appetizers and scuba gear.
A fine Avanti chardonnay of San Juan will blissfully cohabit your palate with crispy alligator-tail meat in spicy Thai sauce, while the 2004 Dolium Grand Reserve Mendoza Malbec may forge a new culinary friendship between your tasting nubs and cornmeal-crusted fried green tomatoes with creamy buttermilk dip. The vintages you sample are all available for purchase by the bottle, and during the event, you can take advantage of wine deals, such as the San Huberto 2008 Malbec selling for $17.24, 25% off normal price. You'll also be able to get a mixed or monogamous case, which will drop the price per bottle an additional 20%.
Though most of the Black Door Wine Tasting's attendees are unable to review an event that has not occurred, Out & About publicized the results of the A-List readers poll naming Max's Wine Dive's Austin hangout the Best Addition to Austin's Nightlife Scene. The Houston location of the same name was called a Top 10 Wine Bar in the United States by Bon Appétit.
