Get your Malbec on… World Malbec day Sunday April 17th. Shop today, sip tomorrow!

The darling of Argentina is the Malbec grape and the amazing wine it produces. This varietal may have finally found its true home after disease and phase out made it a relatively scarce grape in the Cahors region of France. Thankfully, today, Malbec is regaining its standing in France, but not like the stardom it has in Argentina.

Originating from the vines brought to Argentina in 1868 by agricultural engineer Michel Pouget, Malbec has grown into Argentina’s Rock-Star of wines.  Tomorrow, Sunday April 17th, is World Malbec Day. Wine lovers around the world will be sampling Malbec wines. Consider sampling one from Argentina and one from Cahors, France. This tasting will prove that terrior ‘a sense of place‘ has much to do with how a wine tastes as does the varietal itself.

Shop today, Sip tomorrow!
