Kurt Kutay praises Pablo (left) and Izekiel the winemaker (center) for
the full terroir of La Azul wine paired with joyful hospitality and exquisite cuisine.
If terroir is considered to be the full ecology of a wine, then other key factors are the cultural and social milieu wherein the whole enterprise of production and consumption takes place. Ezequiel Fadel, Chef Jaime, Pablo and all our friends at La Azul rounded out the full body of the evening to enjoy their wines

to be remembered at Bodega La Azul.
If we are to consider the broader definition of terroir, then for me, the terrior of La Azul is what most satisfies my palate and my heart because of the way La Azul blends their special grapes and love to share this life of Argentina with guests. It truly enhances their wine!
We also enjoyed our tasting in the fancy cellars of Salentine, but it wasn’t until we had our “picnic” at their vineyard resort where we were staying that the full flavor of Salentine wine came to life in the out of doors on sofa chairs in the grass under a big tree paired with the meats, fresh hot empanadas, cheeses and olives.

A "picnic" with sofas, tables and chairs under the shade of a large tree
in the summer on a wine and gastronomy tour of Argentina is the best
way to enjoy the full terroir of their wine!
