Bodegas y Viñedos Renacer Tasting Event Seated & guided tasting with Max Kurman Thursday, January 18, 6:30-8pm, $10*(free for members)
Attention all RED wine lovers. Max Kurman, Certified Specialist of Wine and District Manager for Grape Beginnings, will be your host for a very educational evening featuring remarkable red wines by Bodega Renacer, Argentina.
Bodegas Renacer is a boutique winery that specializes in Malbec and produces only four wines: Punto Final Clasico, Punto Final Reserva, Enamore and Renacer.
Founded in 2004, Bodega Renacer’s philosophy is to produce top new world wines of the finest quality that each terroir can provide. Family owned and operated, the winery is located in Perdriel, no more than a half hour’s drive from Mendoza. The wines are a fusion of classic and modern. Coming from several different high elevation vineyards throughout Luján de Cuyo and the Uco Valley, the approach at Renacer is simple: source from where the grapes taste best. Nearly half of the plantings are over 90 years old and they employ precision viticulture, treating each parcel separately.
One of the most sustainable wineries in Argentina, Bodega Renacer is committed to protecting the environment. They are the first winery in Argentina to be certified carbon neutral. They use 100% eco friendly bottles, with a lighter weight (15% less glass, reduced carbon emissions), and a recyclable carton case.
They store the water that flows from the Andes Mountains in natural ponds, which provide the vines only with the water that they need and nothing more, thus maximizing its use. The used water is returned to the environment in its natural state, free of chemicals or foreign substances.
Renacer continues innovating and improving their commitment to the land and vineyards, and always ensures that the natural resources are protected.

Valentine was first recognized around the third century as a Roman saint commemorated on Feb 14. This time in the high middle ages was known for and associated with courtly love. Which leads us to now, when the lineage of both wine and courtly love intersect so we can bring you our ‘Wine is my Valentine’ tasting. 14 wines historically known by poets throughout the ages to help along with amore. And to top it off we have psychic Sally to give you fortunes of love and life along with live music to set the love mood.
