When visiting a country there are three things that you must absolutely do: learn its history, meet local people and try traditional food and drinks. This experience combines all three. As a history teacher and wine lover I would like to share with you part of Argentina´s exciting and intriguing history, but in a fun an dynamic way, while we drink wine and eat empanadas. This experience will take place at my cozy home, an apartment in the heart of Palermo which has been featured in home decor magazines. After we meet and introduce each other we will dive right into the history of Argentina by exploring the lives of two of its iconic personalities: Juan Domingo Perón and Evita. Uncovering the gripping stories behind these characters will help you understand Argentina’s eclectic and fascinating identity, and its present. Each character will be paired with different wines, carefully selected to experience history will all our senses. Empanadas will be served halfway through.
Hi, I am Sofia and I invite you to my home to share with you my greatest passions and interests: history, wine and meeting people from different countries. I have a degree in international relations from one of Argentina´s top universities, and I am History teacher. For the past ten years I have been working in schools and in an international educational organization. I love to travel and I have visited more than 50 countries (“Travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer”). My love for wine has led me to participate in different wine courses (the last one In Cave, Argentina´s most prestigious wine school). I have also travelled through Argentina’s amazing wine regions visiting its greatest wineries. Finally, I would not be a true Argentinian without my football fanaticism! I go to Boca Juniors stadium every Sunday.
Meat empanadas. Vegetarian empanadas available upon request.
The experience takes place in my home, a cozy apartment in the heart of Palermo. The apartment looks more like a house since it has two patios, even though it is not on the ground floor. The apartment has been featured in home decor magazines.
