APARTADO GRAN MALBEC AT COLÓN THEATRE’S GALA
The Argentine Malbec chosen to represent the country at the Gala Dinner served in Colón Theater’s Golden Hall for the G20 leaders was Rutini Apartado Gran Malbec 2014. The iconic argentine variety accompanied the main course of the most important night of this summit: loin, morels, artichoke, potato and smoked cream, prepared by EAT Catering.
That night, after a reception, the G20 leaders were entertained with “Argentum”, a show directed by Ricky Pashkus. With the food as well as with the show the organizers sought to display the salient characteristics of Argentina. On stage traditional dances and different types of music were performed, while impressive landscapes changed to the sound of music. Eighty-four artists and seventy-five musicians enlivened the stage. The show also featured guest figures such as Julio Bocca and Mora Godoy.
