Zorzal Wine Tasting

June 12, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Juan Pablo from Zorzal Winery is coming to Craft Cellars!
Here is a tasting you do not want to miss, Juan Pablo is a super star in the wine world right. Zorzal has won countless awards and medals. Almost every wine the Michelini brothers put out recieve a 90 plus score, this is truly something not to miss.
The winery is renowned for having state-of-the-art technology in crushing, fermentation and ageing. In order to achieve natural wines of the highest quality, the winery was designed on four levels to transport grapes and wines by gravity, without the use of pumps. At the same time, the winery has an automatic system of temperature control from New Zealand, which can be operated by internet from anywhere in the world. In their search to get the best out of the Gualtallary terroir, the Michelini brothers are constantly innovating processes, and this has involved bringing in roll fermenters and egg-shaped vats, in addition to introducing staggered harvesting and micro-vinifications in casks.

Graduated as a Winemaker at the Don Bosco College, Mendoza’s most important school of winemaking. Juan Pablo worked at the St Francis Winery in Sonoma, California, as part of his studies and started work at the distinguished Argentine winery Doña Paula, where he acquired experience in high-grade wines. After two years, he moved to Pomerol, France. During 2005 and 2006 he stayed in Cafayate learning the technique for high-altitude vines. In 2008, he arrived at Zorzal, in Gualtallary, a winery which in only three years managed to conquer the position of “Best Malbec over USD 50” in the “Argentina Wines Awards 2010”, the most important competition in that country.
