“He looked as if he had been beaten to death with a wine bottle, but by doing it with the contents of the bottle.”

― Richard Brautigan, The Abortion: An Historical Romance, 1966


 


If you have been following me for even a short length of time you have heard me say- “you just can't get a better value when considering Bordeaux varietals than what is coming from Chile and Argentina today”. That is why we spend the month of August studying the new releases from these two South American wine producing countries.


Argentina is the fifth largest wine producer on the planet today but it was not until recently that the wines have been highly regarded by wine drinkers outside of Argentina. They consumed most of the wine produced here over the last few hundred years as the population of Argentina were also among the largest consumers of wine in the world.   It was not until the late 1980’s when they started to look to export their wines as the population started drinking less wine and some people in other parts of the wine world started to notice the potential of the wines from areas like Mendoza and Patagonia.


Superstar consultants like Michele Rolland from Bordeaux and Paul Hobbs from California started working with Argentina’s biggest names in the wine industry and the rest of the wine drinking people outside of Argentina began to take notice of Argentina’s wines.


Today, the wines of Argentina are on par with the best wines produced anywhere in the world. I have been touting the wines from this country for the last decade saying that “You can’t find a better value if you like Bordeaux varietals than Argentina.”  Malbec is the star here but the blends are the best wines to me and when you look at the top end of the quality range today these wines can also hang with the best made anywhere in the world.


 


Join us as we taste through a few dozen of the best wines from Argentina available in South Florida in the wine cave at Wine Watch.   This is a walk around tasting and is limited to 45 tasters, the fee for this tasting in $45+ tax for reservations call 954-523-9463 or e-mail andy@winewatch.com.
