Three months after opening its doors to the public, contemporary Mexican restaurant Sueño will host its first exclusive wine dinner with an Argentinian winemaker.

On Sunday, Oct. 3, from 4 pm. to 7 p.m., Sueño will host a wine dinner with Gabriel Baigorria, co-owner of Mi Terruño Winery in Argentina. The exclusive wine dinner is curated by Lauren Gay, Sueño’s wine director and general manager.

“I am very excited to welcome Gabriel Baigorria, co-owner of Mi Terruño wines in Argentina, to host Sueño’s very first wine dinner,” Gay said. “Mi Terruño encompasses so much of what I look for in a wine- terruño (terroir), or wines that accurately tell the story of the place that they come from. To have Gabriel come and tell his story, the story of his family, his land, and his wines with us first hand… it’s truly an honor.”

The four-course dinner will feature wines five wines from Mi Terruño Winery. Since 1960, the Baigorria family has been crafting some of the finest wines in Mendoza, Argentina. For Gay, what makes Mi Terruño Winery special is the fact that its chief winemaker is Gabriel’s sister, Maria Eugenia Baigorria.

“I feature female winemakers as often as I can,” Gay said. “They are still somewhat rare in the world of wine. Mi Terruño’s chief winemaker is Gabriel’s sister, Eugenia Baigorria. By highlighting the successes of women in their respective fields, we can encourage and inspire more young women to pursue their dreams.”

“We have some incredible talent in this kitchen, led by Executive Chef Jorge Guzman and Chef de Cuisine Rico Thompson,” Gay said. “The three of us sat and drank through Mi Terruño’s offerings and let the wines inspire the menu. I am not a chef, but I understand flavor profiles and pairings and was invigorated to rap with these brilliant chefs and let the creative juices flow. The menu they’ve created for this experience is truly inspired, and I know guests attending this meal will be blown away.”
