October 1st is the preview of our newest exhibit, Southern Exposure: Jews of Argentina. This event is open to the public, and is guaranteed to be lots of fun!
Cost: $8 members, $12 non-members
Throughout the event, we will have Argentinian wines and desserts for guests to taste and sample:
Eli Montero: This wine is a Chardonnay and is from the region of Cuyo, specifically Mendoza, of Argentina.
Malbec: According to vivino.com, “Extremely popular, Argentinian Malbec is an inky, medium-bodied, dry red wine with strong impressions of dark fruits on the nose and palate. This wine tends to have mellower tannins than its French counterpart. Heavily dependent on where they are grown for variations in flavor, Argentinian Malbec has quickly become a world favorite due to the characteristics that the high altitude climate and soils impart to the fruit.”
Alfajor Cookies: According to the Huffington Post, “Alfajores Are The Best Cookie You’ve Never Heard Of”. Continued, “There’s a reason this simple cookie defines the cafe scene in Buenos Aires and has entire cafes devoted to it all across Latin America. It’s maybe the best cookie that ever was. We suspect it might be because of the long path it has journeyed — each step getting it a little bit closer to the perfection it has achieved today.”
Churros: Basically, fried dough. Enough said.
Dolce de Leche: This sweet confection is a mixture of milk and sugar that is heated, almost like a caramel-like substance. “Dolce de Leche” translated means “candy of milk”. Yumm!
Assorted Sweets: We all love these 🙂
Fresh Fruit: We love these too!
