IX ANNUAL CHARITY WINE TASTING

The beautiful Embassy of Argentina hosts one of DC’s most popular wine tasting events: the IX Annual Charity Wine Tasting. This is a great opportunity to collaborate with our fundraising efforts while enjoying Argentina’s best wines, including award-winning traditional Malbecs, fruity Torrontes, hearty Cabernet Sauvignons, and more, paired with delicious food from Rural Society. And you can also participate of our Wine Raffle!

The proceeds of this event will support an education project in Argentina. With the collaboration of Help Argentina, we conduct an application process through which we select a project based on specific criteria, such as urgency of need, number of children impacted and potential benefit to the community.

Escuela Familia Agricola Renacer will be this year’s Annual Charity Wine Tasting beneficiary!

This rural school is located in the province of Corrientes, Argentina, 550 miles north from Buenos Aires. This school offers a seven-year program from which students graduate as Technicians in Agriculture, giving them a complete skillset that helps them quickly enter the job market. Given the location of the institution, students spend an entire week at the school before going home for another week to apply the knowledge acquired. Currently, there are 95 students in a building with 3 classrooms, 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. An expansion project is underway, and funds raised at our event will be allocated to the construction of a laboratory-classroom that will be used to conduct experiments and research in agriculture practices.
