The Tango Through the Wine Roads event is done in Mendoza since 2008, shortly after the city was honored with the title of World Capital of Wine. It is like the perfect amalgam of two Argentine passions that are a symbol both of our culture and our production: the tango (declared as “Intangible Cultural Heritage” by UNESCO) and wine (declared as national drink in 2010) .
Every year during the month of September, the Ministries of Culture and Tourism of Mendoza and Bodegas de Argentina join forces to perform a series of concerts and performances of music and dance, whose main axis is tango. The sites chosen for the musical display are museums, wineries, theaters, scenery, tourist and heritage sites in the province, hotels, bars, cafés and restaurants.
Fairs and art shows, clothing and books, lectures, workshops, conferences and milongas and urban tango interventions are also present. It seeks to make a contribution to the promotion and dissemination of this national musical genre, so more than 50 galas tango are performed for 12 consecutive days throughout the province. prominent personalities both local and national are homenajean and duets, soloists, orchestras, electronic tango and all kinds of sets are presented.
In previous editions they have already been honored figures such as Carlos Gardel, Piazzolla, Aníbal Troilo and locally Pichuco Astrudillo and Francisco Luis Colombo. Those interested in attending should redeem two boxes of milk by two entrances, solidarity dedicated to various social organizations.
