StayUnico’s Pick of the Month: Tierra Club de Vinos
A common passion for excellent wine and delicious food is what brought together the team behind Tierra Club de Vinos. Their very different international components as well as an absolute love for what they do is what triggered the magic and made it possible to create a one of a kind experience in this closed-door scene.
Update: Tierra Club de Vinos is now closed.
Laura and Peter, a Colombian and an American, both chefs, carefully pick the best ingredients and put them together to create dishes to die for.
Individual is an understatement and on the night that we were there, we experienced shrimp, hare and tenderloin in three stylistic dishes, as well as delicious hummus with warm home-baked bread.
Unlike most closed door restaurants, their menu choice is based on the selection of wines, and not the other way around - Definitely a chef’s challenge, but will most certainly exceed your expectations, as it surely did ours!
Bertie, an English wine connoisseur, is in charge of the pouring and of course, the selection. He meticulously explains the origin and specifications of each one of the wines that you will be tasting through the evening, and, most importantly, will be the one keeping your glasses topped up.
The wines are usually from smaller bodegas (vineyards) and not commonly found in local markets. For those of you interested in taking any of these bottles home, at the end of the tasting you will be given a form where you can pick and purchase any of the wines that you tasted throughout the event.
And last but not least, Aby is the Argentinian component of this multicultural team. She is the host and restaurant manager and ensures that everything goes smoothly and that everyone is having a good time.
Laura, Peter, Bertie and Aby invite you to their home in Palermo Hollywood twice a month, to delight your palates and introduce a completely new approach to drinking and understanding wine.
Tastings start at 7 pm and last for roughly 2 hours. Their price is very reasonable too, at around ARS 350 per tasting. The laid back atmosphere and communal table is part of the magic. From first time expats to recurring locals and tourists, Tierra Club is definitely a Unico experience.
