About Malbec de Angeles
Established in 1924, the vineyard is preserved traditionally to show the expression of the grapes with little influence from oak or the winemaker. The 2008 vintage was named Top 10 Malbec by Decanter Magazine and Stephen Tanzer gave the 2010 vintage 89 points. Learn more about Malbec de Angeles
About Bodega La Azul
Located at the base of the Andes, Bodega La Azul is one of the smallest wineries in Mendoza. The 2010 Reserva is a blend of 60% Malbec and 40% Cabernet Sauvignon. Learn more about Bodega La Azul

Join us on Wednesday, July 31 from 6-7 pm (PST) on Twitter for #winechat
#Winechat was created by Marie Sanderson Payton, then wine lovers enjoyed the weekly event via Bill Eyer and it's now led by Protocol Wine Studio. We're fans of Protocol Wine Studio as they believe in a true wine culture: taste it, share it, live it.
If you have a Twitter account, it's easy to participate in #WineChat. Add us to your calendar for July 31 from 6-7pm (PST) and type in #winechat to follow the conversation. Join the conversation by using the hashtag so everyone can see your question or comment.
During this #winechat we'll be focused on Argentina's wine: providing information on the premier wine region Mendoza, tasting signature grape Malbec and sharing stories behind the people who create the wines.
Why Mendoza? It's where the vast majority of wines from Argentina are produced with significant differences between the subregions. Also, I (Courtney Quinn, wine importer of OWOC Wines) used to live there. We import wines from Argentina into California while sharing the story of people who produce the wine with the people who enjoy drinking the wine.
What Argentine wine will be tasted? The 2008 Malbec de Angeles Malbec. The Malbec is from a vineyard established in 1924 that preserves the terroir with little influences to the wine and named "Top 10 Malbec" by Decanter Magazine in June 2012. Both wines are 100% varietals.
How can I get the wines for this #winechat? We have a small quantity of wines for those in the trade or wine writers who can use the contact form to inquire. If you are in San Diego, we have a few spots at our tasting during #winechat at Protocol Wine Studio...please email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve you spot. If you learn about #winechat too late to get the wines, I'd encourage you to still join us. I've participated in a few #winechat without the wines and still learned about wine regions, producers, etc.
We look forward to you joining the conversation on #winechat via Twitter on Wednesday, July 31 at 6pm (PST).
