Meet The Maker
Discover new wines while you get up close and personal with the wine-maker.
Location: Juanita’s Bar
Date: Wed 13 March
Time: 7pm – 10pm
About the maker:
Manuel Filgueira is an incredible wine-maker who makes small quantities of exceptional wine out of his own home in Uruguay. His winery is Los Nadies translating to “the nobodies”. Manuel is more interested in growing a community around Los Nadies than attaining world prestige. In Uruguay he sells his wines primarily through friends and a very limited number of vendors.
About the wines:
Manuel’s approach is minimalist in both the vineyard and in the cellar. His wines have bio-organic principles, hand harvested and hand sorted from dry grown, gnarly old vines – low yielding. The wines are unfined & unfiltered and often aged in glass to allow for tertiary complexity.
The wines available to sample include:
Picardia – skin contact Chardonnay & Gerwurz
Equilibrio Tannat – Malbec
Equilibrio Tannat – Merlot
Impetu Tannat – Merlot
All wines will be available to purchase by the glass throughout the night. After you have sampled the wines & met Manuel, why not join us for dinner in our dining room. View our menu & book a table today.
