It was very appropriate that Cambalache, which means “bazaar” in Spanish was held at the Brooklyn Night Bazaar in NY. Hosted by Wines of Argentina for Malbec World Day, though cambalache in Tango culture is used to describe something that is chaotic, haphazard, filled with contrast and above all exciting, the event we attended was overall well organized, which is something we value here at Socially Superlative.
The event, which took place mid-April, paid homage to the wine, food, music and cultural of Argentina. There were over 120 wines to taste from 26 of Argentina’s top winemakers, food provided by Sur Empanada, traditional Argentine ice cream flavors from Cones, wine and music pairing from sensory professor Charles Spence and Barry Smith, history lessons, an area for professional or novice tangoers, live street art and more!
The vendors were very knowledgeable on their respective products, which was amazing to get insight into. We were definitely a fan of the wines and were eager to find out that most of the wines can be found here in NY. We’re very lucky to live in a city that is very connected!
This is the 4th time this event has taken place, and it migrates to different cities to educate attendees on the Argentine culture, and of course give them a chance to sample Argentine wine!
