Catena Wine Dinner
4 Courses & Wines $75/person
We are kicking off our winter 2012 wine dinner series at Caminito in true Argentine fashion!
Thursday, January 19th we will be offering a four course wine dinner featuring the highly acclaimed "Alta" series wines from Bodega Catena Zapata. The Catena family has always been at the forefront of Argentine winemaking, for this reason it is only natural to begin this year's wine dinner series with some of their best wines!
These exquisite wines will be paired with a menu that embodies the simple steak house elegance that is the sole of true Argentine cuisine. The menu emphasizes both the use of traditional Argentine cooking methods and ingredients. This is sure to be a popular wine dinner so be sure to book your reservations early!
