FineWinesnMore along with Winemaker Mike Barrow from Costafores Organic Vineyard in Mendoza, provided the Argentine wines with the unique moniker – MTB – for the evening. The wines have been specially developed for the Indian market in conjunction with FWNM and were launched around the country this month. The canapés and sinful desserts from Deliciae were a delicious accompaniment to the single vineyard organic 08 Torrontes and 07 Malbec/Petit Verdot blend.
