The Unforgettable Kiss
Amazing wine, dinner and a killer view to match with the legendary Pepe Galante and his family, now that’s a legendary evening I will never forget.

Previously, he was the chief winemaker at Catena Zapata from 1976 until 2010 and put Argentine wine on the map.
I had the chance to interview Pepe along with his son Fernando and learned a lot about their family. Take a look at the video to hear what a typical Sunday family dinner is like in their house!
