The 5th annual Malbec World Day is coming up April 17th There will be tons of tastings, events and parties going on all over the globe, all devoted to this luscious, deep coloured, spicily rich very popular now…red grape. Yes, we said desert, albeit a desert that sits at the foot of the stunning Andes mountains with the snow melt that comes down and quenches the thirst of the vines. It is the perfect home for the vineyards with a climate and soils that allow Malbec to have found its niche.
