New wines from Argentina at Spirits Unlimited Middletown


Spirits Unlimited Middletown welcomed two wine specialists from Argentina on Friday, September 25 to sample three Argentine wines — Sangre De Vina Torrontes, Sangre De Vina Malbec and El Guardado Syrah. Notably, these three wines are featured in the 25% Case Discount Corner at the Middletown store.

From 4 p.m. until 6 p.m. Laura E. Ciacera and Miguel Cano shared their insight about the vineyards of San Juan area, the wines they were introducing and answered questions.

Ciacera, one of the owners and sales and marketing director of La Guarda vineyards, Argentina, explained how the San Juan area is working to produce some of the more interesting whites and reds that are appearing in American liquor stores at the moment.

Cano, president of Don Cano Wines Import Corp. in the New York/New Jersey region, is a wine producer from the up-and-coming San Juan region as well. He said the altitude and soil of the San Juan area help craft the complex wines that he was sampling at the store.

Overall, these wines are great buys, according to Rick Allocca, the local wine expert at the store.
