All that is outstanding is different in an unexpected way. That’s what happened with the harvest of 2016 in Argentina, but particularly in Mendoza: a year in which nature will leave its indelible mark on both the wines and the memory of its winemakers. With a cold spring and an October with an average...
“While a novelty generates curiosity, only a classic has lasting value.” It is a maxim that counts for pretty much everything in life, and was whispered to me recently by an importer of English wines who was passing through Argentina. We had been talking for at least an hour about the incredible...
A simple question doesn’t always produce a simple answer, and less so in the case of Malbec. A grape variety that is planted between 250 metres – 3,000 metres above sea level in Argentina and offers many expressions depending on the type of soil it is found in, among its 39 thousand hectares...

There are two asados, one is the ritual of preparing it and the other is the ritual of cooking it. In Argentina, it is a huge event of eating delicious meat and drinking good wines, which no traveller should miss.
This April 17th, for the fifth consecutive year, we will be holding Malbec World Day, a celebration created and established by Wines of Argentina, the organization responsible for the promotion of the Vino Argentino brand worldwide. And we are inevitably full of expectation! In 2015, with more than 70 events...
