Every year, more than 230 wine enthusiasts attend Centro Argentino’s Annual Charity Wine Tasting at the Argentine Embassy in Washington, D.C., and help raise funds to promote greater access to education for underprivileged children in Argentina.
Thanks to the generous donations made by our sponsoring wine distributors and importers and to the help of volunteers, attendees have the chance to taste different high quality Argentine wine labels that are presented at the Embassy’s unique Oval Room.
The wine tasting is paired by traditional Argentine hors d’oeuvres. In addition, attendees have the opportunity to enjoy and purchase works of art by Argentine artists or related to the Argentine culture and to participate in wine raffles!
Each year, we select a different project based on location, financial need, number of beneficiaries and potential impact in the respective community. We are currently receiving applications from Argentinean non-profits that need to finance an educational project. The application closes on August 15, 2016. If you are from a non-profit and would like to apply, please send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org requesting the application form and additional information.
