Having become a cult hit in Melbourne over the past three years, Gauchito Gil's Malbec World Day will be held in Sydney for the first time this year, on 23 Apr.

The event is Australia's largest celebration of Argentina's most famed grape, Malbec.

We're seeing more and more winning examples of the full-bodied red in our country, and the event will see more than 80 styles of the wine from both Australia and Argentina (which boasts the largest Malbec production area in the world) being showcased.

The celebration includes live tango dancing and a traditional Argentinian feast including empanadas from barbecue kings Porteno.
