Argentine Wines in BA's J and F

I attended a wine tasting event yesterday and was reminded by someone that BA is serving Argentine wines on select longhaul routes (probably LHR-EZE). I understand that BA bought almost the entire production of the Susana Balbo winery sometime during 2001. Anyone seen these on BA menus lately?

Thanks.

They were serving a 2000 Valentin Bianchi Chardonnay and an 2000 Anubis Bonarda (both Argentinian) in J in July/August on the GRU/EZE run... nothing Argentinian the month before in F, but the usual Austrian Riesling thats been on the menu the whole year (my favorite!)

Thanks for the heads up. Anybody else catch something from the right side of the Andes onboard BA premium cabins...?
