Bodega Argento & Bodega Garzón partner with Latin American St Pancras pop-up
Premium South American wine estates, Bodega Argento and Bodega Garzón have teamed up with Latin American inspired pop-up UNA, to launch a series of exclusive supper clubs.
Located underneath London’s iconic St Pancras Hotel Clock Tower, the pop-up will comprise an exclusive six course tasting menu with carefully selected wine pairings from central Mendoza winery, Bodega Argento and Uruguay’s leading winery, Bodega Garzón, hosted by leading Argentinian chef Martin Milesi, who has over 20 years’ experience working at many prestigious restaurants in Argentina and teaching gastronomy in one of the most respected universities of Culinary Art, the Argentine Institute of Gastronomy, partner of L’école Lenôtre.
Highlighting the cultural diversity of Latin America, the evening will send guests on a journey through some of the most unique and exquisite flavours of the region. Held beneath the chimes of the St Pancras Clock Tower, with picturesque views across the whole city, the exclusive supper club, with only one table and an intimate 12 covers, will showcase Milesi’s enchanting and high-end approach to South American cuisine, alongside wines from two of its leading producers.
Each of Milesi’s six classical and conceptual dishes is inspired by the varied cuisines of Latin America. On arrival, diners will be treated to an exclusive cocktail, followed by a Cassava amouse-bouche with Argento Malbec Rosé, and exquisite dishes including a vegetable Escabeche and cod Moqueca with coconut milk paired up with Garzón Albariño, and a locro with a twist and speciality Argentine Beef with the traditional flavours of the Esquinas de Argento Malbec.
Martin Milesi, Founder Chef of UNA, said, “We’re really excited to be partnering with two such great names from South America – Bodega Argento and Bodega Garzón. As we only set-up one table within St. Pancras Clock Tower, we have the opportunity to talk with our 12 guests and we really enjoy promoting our roots with Londoners. The wines, paired with my dishes, will help create an exclusive gastronomical experience for each and every guest, inspired by the rich cultural diversity of Latin America. The freshness and versatility of the wines really complement my food and the setting is just perfect.”
Gustavo Crespo, Managing Director at Blends Wine Estates UK, said, “We’re delighted to be partnering with UNA on this really exciting project at the iconic St Pancras. South American food and wine is so popular now in the UK and we’re delighted to be able to team up with one of South America’s top chefs to showcase the undiscovered flavours of Latin America. The wines from both Argento and Garzón demonstrate the diversity and true reflection of the countries and are perfectly paired to the dishes of Martin Milesi.”
