We are very excited to be hosting world-renowned vintner, Dr. Laura Catena, for a special wine dinner on Friday, June 17, 2022. Dr. Catena will be presenting several wines that she and her father, Nicolás Catena Zapata, produce in Mendoza, Argentina at Bodega Catena Zapata Winery since 1902. Nicolás Catena Zapata has been credited with revolutionizing the Argentine wine industry in the last 50 years, earning him Wine Enthusiast’s Lifetime Achievement Award in 2021.
Since 1995, Dr. Laura Catena has been leading the research studying every aspect of the family vineyards from soil microbiome, in-depth soil parcel composition as it relates to flavor and aroma, to high altitude climate variations, collectively known as terroir, at the Catena Institute of Wine. In 2020, Dr. Catena released her book called Gold in the Vineyards, the English translation of Oro en los Viñedos, which was published by Catapulta in 2017. The book, profiles 12 different vineyards, located in both the New and Old World, charting their history and explaining why they have become so well-known.
