WHO IS GAUCHITO GIL?
He is an Argentine Robin Hood-like character who stole from the rich to give to the poor. As a result, he gained somewhat of a following and in wonderful Argentinean twist of fate, is effectively known as the patron saint of thieves.
Malbec World Day has traditionally been dominated by Argentina as Mendoza really is the spiritual home of the variety. With many great examples available in Australia, we are ‘stealing’ some of the lime light and plan of celebrating both Argentinean and Australian examples of the grape.
It happens in SYDNEY & MELBOURNE every April.
