Hubert Weber of Bodega Y Cavas de Weinert @ Carlitos Gardel

Hot off the Carlitos Gardel press, and also this sounds like a really good one:

Dear Friends,
We are very proud and excited to announce that on Sunday, September 25, 2011 we will have amongst us Swiss born, Argentine winemaker Hubert Weber of Bodega Y Cavas de Weinert. As many of you know, Weinert holds a special place in our wine list here at Carlitos Gardel. The old-world approach and sophisticated, understated elegance of their wines make Weinert one of our absolute favorite producers from Argentina.

Mr. Hubert Weber began his winemaking career in Switzerland, where he studied viticulture, enology, and beverage technology. In 1995 he humbly applied for an internship at Bodega Y Cavas de Weinert, for the opportunity to learn from the master of Argentine wine himself and winemaker for Weinert from its very beginning, Don Raul de la Mota. Soon after their initial meeting, Don De La Mota recognized the young talent and with Mr. Weinert's consent brought him into the Weinert family as Assistant Winemaker. In 1997, after 2 years at the winery, Mr. Weber proudly succeded Don Raul as winemaker of Weinert, with the intention of continuing the legacy in crafting world class wines that Weinert has been known for since it's inception in 1977.

On Sunday, September 25, we invite you to meet this European talent now residing in Argentina, whom with his vision and education is helping pioneer a still evolving culture in Argentine wine, bringing to it the understated elegance and grace that many European wines are known and hailed for all over the world.
