Argentine Wine

Argentina is one of the top five wine-producing countries in the world. For a long time, most of the wine was made for local consumption. But in the past quarter-century, an increasing number of vintners began making very serious releases with the most widely planted red grape, Malbec. These made a big splash on the international scene, winning awards, garnering high ratings and amassing enthusiastic disciples. Torrontes is the star indigenous white grape, now on many restaurant menus for its refreshing, aromatic qualities and affordability. An increasing number of international grapes are grown, most notably Cabernet Sauvignon, Bonarda, Merlot, Syrah, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. All styles of wine are made from dry whites and reds, rosés, sparkling, late harvest sweet wines and fortified wines.

Argentina boasts an impressive number of wine-makers under the age of thirty-five, and a growing number of women innovating the field. This is a country that has learned that investing quality and Read more »

I love life outdoor and wine. I have travelled a lot trying to understand the influence of soil over wine quality. It is amazing.

  • Mira Vos Mendoza Malbec 2014


    A recent Tasting Room selection. Semi-opaque Garnet Red. Opens with Cherry/Spice; Nutmeg & Black Pepper; a bit of Orange Peel zing and Alcohol burn; Somewhat tannic mouthful, though overall smooth and easy. Finishes with Cherry/Plum and more Cherry, Oak and Smoke. Not too bad, seemed somewhat thin and not quite as bold compared to other Malbecs. Read More

  • Domaine Bousquet Grande Reserve Malbec Tupungato Valley 2013


    Elegant and smooth red fruit notes of raspberry, red currant and black cherry on the nose with candied plum and sweet floral violet aromas. The rich and round palate carries itself assertively with thick and ripe raspberry and cherry flavors, smooth texture and well balanced structure. On the finish this has great length with black fruit flavors... Read More

  • Argentina is destined for success in the production of fine wines, because there are all the elements for excellent raw material (grapes). Is otherwise considered as natural elements, the water that comes from the thaw of the Andes, the dry land and with minimal humidity, and more than 300 days of sunshine a year, and little nesecidade use of pe...
