The Embassy of Argentina in Armenia celebrated Malbec World Day during a reception in the framework of Argentine Wine Week in Yerevan.
Diplomats and guests were invited to the reception to taste the best samples of the Argentinean wine.
“Argentina Wine Week features a series of events, and the most important is today’s wine tasting of Argentinean wine with our friends,” Argentina’s Ambassador to Armenia Gonzalo Urriolabeitia said addressing the guests.
The ambassador emphasized that the main goal of these events is to promote Argentinean wine, and added that this product is also very important for the Armenians.
“These kinds of events make Argentina, its products and culture closer to the Armenian public, businessman and government to promote friendship between our people,” he said.
