IKAL 1150 Wines Of Argentina Tango Into Our World

The word “ikal” means poetry in Mayan native languages and 1150 refers to the meters above sea level (about 400 ft.) where the winery sits in the majestic Andes mountains. The elevation being free of insects and mold allows Ikal to create gravity fed winemaking without pesticides. Rocky Andes mountain soil, optimal growing temperatures, and pure snow-melt water combine to produce a concentration and complexity of flavors that I found to be truly poetic in nature.

Doffo Winery – Bring On The Zin

Edwin announced that Doffo won “best overall winery” selected by several authors from the TOT organization. This winery was picked out of 27 wineries that participated in the World of Wine tour that occurred on March 6th and 7th. As the announcement was made, the crowd clapped and cheered for Marcelo and his family. The positive nods from those that were clapping only demonstrated that this was not a surprise to them.
