“Every year more and more people are realizing the importance of organics/biodynamics,” said Andrej Razumovsky, the proprietor/winemaker at Alpamanta, “but it’s not about just saying you practice for marketing purposes. You must really believe it and practice it every day as other tasks are being carried out.”

Yesterday’s South American & Iberian Portfolio Tasting at the Standard Biergarten was a smashing success with equal representation from both north and south of the Equator. We’d like to thank our producers who made the trip, both old friends and new, it was awesome to see everyone, to taste through their wines and to reconnect.
If you missed the event, please see below for a list of tastings with Matias Mayol and Roberto Ijalba.
“Matias’ family are farmers first and foremost,” says Jorge, our Portfolio Director of South American Wines. ”They have single vineyard holdings in the best sub-appellations, at different elevations…Matias has been the pillar, the building block of our Argentine Portfolio. In 2003, Argentina was starting to get attention. I said to TB, if we don’t move now, we’re going to miss the boat…I could see the change, that something big was going to come from those countries.”
