WHO IS GAUCHITO GIL?

Gauchito Gil was a nineteenth-century Robin Hood-type character who lived life as an outlaw after refusing to fight in the Argentine Civil War. He spent his time relieving the rich of their possessions and, err, redistributing them among the disadvantaged. He was also rumoured to have miraculous healing powers.

It’s unclear how much of the tale of Gauchito Gil is fact and how much is fable, but what is certain is how revered he is among Argentineans. His death day – January 8, 1878 – is celebrated every year with feasts, and more than 100,000 devotees flock to his hometown of Pay Ubre. Every roadside in Argentina is punctuated with blood-red monuments, and to this day, thieves and robbers pray to him before committing crimes – a custom which has earned him the title of Patron Saint of Thieves.

As the spiritual home of Malbec is Argentina, it makes sense for us to honour Gil’s memory the REVEL way: with a Malbec, tango and empanada party.

Gauchito Gil’s Malbec Day happens in BRISBANEMELBOURNE and SYDNEY every April.
