Marcelo Pelleriti on our 2010 & 2011 Algodon Wines: “The Bonarda! The Malbecs! What great wines!”


Our Senior Wine Advisors, Marcelo Pelleriti and (Master of Wine) Antony Foster both had a lot to say after a recent tasting for our Mendoza winery's 2010 & 2011 wines!  Marcelo took to his Twitter account and tweeted the following (roughly translated into English):

“Wine Tasting of 2010 & 2011 Algodon Wines.  THE BONARDA! THE MALBECS!  What great winesPINOT !!!......”

“THE BONARDAAAAMicro-vinification! I CAN NOT BELIEVE IT!”

“Attention: the Merlot from Algodon Wine Estates in San Rafael will surprise you, think HIGH END! “

“Finishing an incredible tasting at Algodon. Great Malbecs, Bonardas! And MERLOT!”


Anthony Foster followed up with a wonderfully encouraging report as well!  Here’s some of what he said after our wine council’s recent tasting of 46 of our wines, all from the 2010 and 2011 vintages:

“From the quality of the 2011 vintage, there will be a premium line for 2011. A number of wines shone, most notably an amazing Pinot Noir and various parcels of each of the varieties we grow. There is not a weak link amongst them, as my tasting notes will show.”

This is great news for our products, but hopefully more so for the Argentina vineyard real estate from which they are born!  Construction on our first homes are continuing nicely, and we are excited for our future residents and private vineyard owners!  For more information on our Mendoza vineyards for sale, or about our boutique wines and Argentina winery, please visit our website.
