MEET THE WINEMAKER
WINEMAKER EVENING WITH DAVID SMITH OF SONVIDA
WEDNESDAY 5 JUNE, 6PM @ BEDALES OF BOROUGH, SE1 9AL
Join us for a evening with winemaker David Smith of SonVida, a family-run Argentine winery producing fantastic award-winning wines.
Twenty years ago, Sonia and David, an Argentine and a Brit, then both journalists based in Washington DC, fell in love with a piece of land in the heart of the Uco valley. They built a vineyard from scratch, and now make wonderful wines praised by major industry critics.
After a 30-year career as an award-winning foreign correspondent for Reuters and ITN, David was an adviser for the UN Secretary-General, representing the UN in the Americas. Today he’s a winemaker in Altamira, the zone producing some of Argentina’s finest. What a journey!
“I believe a mosaic of experiences, across our world, led me to wine. Each of them teaching me so much, about the way of life in the world of viticulture, wedded to the past maybe but a culture forever thinking tomorrow, and the next harvest. And dreaming perhaps of the ultimate vintage for the ages.”
David has also written a book about their wine adventure, ‘Dream On,’ (Quartet Books).
DURING THE EVENING DAVID WILL SHOWCASE THE SONVIDA RANGE, INCLUDING:
SONVIDA CABERNET SAUVIGNON
SONVIDA ALEGRIA BLEND
AND A SPECIAL VINTAGE THAT WAS RANKED NUMBER 4 IN THE WORLD’S TOP 100 BY NEW YORK’S WINE ENTHUSIAST MAGAZINE
The wines will be complemented by Borough Market inspired nibbles.
Join us thirsty and curious!
