Gauchito Gil

Sometimes adversity helps us grow, sometimes it breaks us. Either way, everyone loves a good disaster story.

Two years ago wine wonks Dan Sims and Ben Edwards decided to travel to Argentina and try their hand at making wine. They coined the trip Two Men in Mendoza. What should have been a pleasant introduction to Argentinean food, wine and culture soon descended into a litany of disasters – corrupt cops, crazy weather, stolen luggage, epic food poisoning, the list goes on.

In the end Dan and Ben ended up making their wine, only for customs to impound the labels for six months. Dan can almost talk about it now without his eye twitching…

So after an epic journey the boys’ Malbec and a Rose, are now unloaded, unpacked and ready for the tasting. You’ll get your chance to see if it was worth all the blood, sweat and tears over the next three weekends at Gauchito Gil, a pop up where the wines are matched with empanadas. He’ll be joined by JED, Chalmers and Matchbox wines

And if you really like the drop you can buy a few bottles to take home and contribute to Dan’s ongoing therapy costs.

Gauchito Gil is happening at 1 Bourke St (cnr Spring)  Aug 15- 18, Aug 22-25 and Aug 29- Sept 1.
Thurs: 5pm-10pm, Fri: 12pm- 10pm, Sat: 2pm-10pm, Sun: 2pm-10pm.
