Malbec Month At Abasto

Abasto, the Argentinian wine and empanada specialist in the heart of Connaught Village, is celebrating World Malbec Day in April with a month of exclusive events for you to join.

Boasting the largest selection of Malbec wines in London, Abasto will pay homage to this beloved grape from Sunday 1 April with a series of special wine previews and empanada tastings – including a ‘No Corkage’ day on Malbec Day itself (Tuesday 17 April).

In addition to featuring over 50 Malbecs from around the world (from Argentina to Spain, New Zealand and France), Abasto also bakes over 12 different types of empanadas daily from its kitchen.

Using traditional pastry dough from Argentina, Abasto hand-crafts a variety of empanadas with fillings from Spanish meats and cheeses to dulce de leche for a unique sweet empanada, as well as vegan and gluten-free versions with beetroot, mushroom or tofu. 

Throughout Malbec Month, the Abasto Wine & Empanada flight menu will be available for just £18.95 - featuring three glasses of wines, delectably paired with a choice of three empanadas.
