San Diego Wine Writers Bloggers Twitters on Ikal 1150 Wines of Argentina

Please join fellow journalists, bloggers, and twitter folk for a taste of our first vintage in San Diego. We'll be pouring all five or our wines in our San Diego inaugural wine launch event. An assortment of cheeses and charcurerie will accompany the wines.
