It’s the day when Malbec lovers around the world celebrate the deliciously deep and chocolatey flavours that have introduced a whole new generation of wine lovers to full-bodied red wines.
The date itself, 17th April, is significant as it’s the anniversary of the decision taken in 1853 by the Argentinian President to import Malbec vines from France. For our celebration of the Malbec grape we will share some superb examples from Argentina and compare them with a wine from the traditional home of Malbec; Cahors in France. Which will you prefer?
With the popularity of Malbec at an all-time high, other wine producing nations are now keen to show what they can do with this great grape and we’ll reveal where you can find Malbecs to rival the best from Argentina.
We’ll also explain why Malbec can claim to be the world’s healthiest red wine and taste a Malbec paired with some fine dark chocolate - an amazing combination.
We’ll taste 6 different wines from the Malbec grape:
