European Wine Fair at ExCeL London

Here’s a new YouTube video posted recently, which showcases Algodon Wine Estates, where wine lovers can buy Argentina vineyard real estate.  The video features various shots of the estate including the vineyards, the surrounding mountains, and the winery.

This week, Anthony Foster, our esteemed Master of Wine, and Fernando Coelho, Algodon Wine’s Sales & Marketing Coordinator, attended the 2010 London International Wine Fair where they introduced our 2008-2009 wine list.  The event is lauded as one of the most important industry events on the international wine and spirits calendar as it brings together Europe's importers, merchants, producers, agents, restaurateurs, wholesalers, and sommeliers under a single venue.  Antony tells me there seems to be great interest in our Malbec and Bonarda!

Under the invaluable guidance of oenologist Marcelo Pelleriti (whose own wines have won ratings on the Parker scale of up to 98 points), select vintages from this year’s Algodon Wine list will retail for the highest they ever have as a result of their superb quality.  We’re all very excited about the evolution of our wines, and I am personally very proud of everyone at Algodon Wine Estates who have worked so hard to maintain- and even advance -our high standards.  Thanks everyone, great work!
