Wines produced by the Catena family, considered to be one of South America finest vintners, will be the highlight of a tasting at Bistango in Irvine on Wednesday, June 21 from 5:30 - 7 p.m.. Among the wines featured will be the Catena Zapata Nicolas Catena, which has earned critical raves and is the 4th highest scoring wine in the world. A native son of Mendoza, Pablo Piccolo will fly in for the occasion. The noted winemaker was virtually raised among the vineyards of Argentina, cultivating his appreciation and knowledge of the local winemaking culture from a young age. Capping his illustrious career has been his 6-year stint at Bodega Catena Zapata.
