World Malbec Day, April 17th is considered to be the founding date of the modern Argentine wine industry. Celebrated around the world, though closely associated with Argentina, World Malbec Day is a celebration of all things Malbec and we were very happy to welcome Eclio Dumon, leading Argentine producer Achaval-Ferrer's North American Brand Ambassador into our studio to discuss Malbec.
Who out there can say that they haven't yet tried Malbec? Its swift rise in popularity is due to the unique conditions of the Argentine vineyards; dry, sunny, and warm. While Malbec is a recent addition to many consumers' wine repertoires, it's a historic variety for Argentina, and one well worth exploring. Listen in as Eclio and I discuss why.
