Let's Celebrate: Malbec World Day!
Tuesday April 14, 2020
Another day to celebrate one spectacular wine variety - Malbec.
This coming April seventeenth let us join our fellow wine enthusiasts in celebrating the World Malbec Day. A holiday established by the Wines of Argentina, an organisation responsible for making the Argentine terroirs be known globally in the wine industry segment.
Malbec, as we all know is a grape assortment broadly utilised in making red wines, it was originated and developed in Cahors, South West of France, however since it's been brought to the Argentine district in the mid nineteenth century - it at that point got celebrated and now known as their "National Variety" of a sort uniquely associated with Argentine wines.
What's more, as written on the official page of www.malbecworldday.com. “it’s delicious!!”, a simply described wine by wine enthusiasts from various places around the globe. A vino which was further developed by the Argentines, imbibing their very own culture and creating a unique experience with each bottle consumed.
In summary, Malbec is more than just a wine but a unique expression of identity from each region where it was produced.
We have compiled some of the finest and top rated Malbec wines found in our cellars here at Bidvino. Check them below:
