Algodon Wine Selected to Represent Argentina at Malbec World Day

We are excited to share that Wines of Argentina, an organization that promotes the Argentine wine brand and image worldwide, recently chose Algodon Wine Estates to represent Argentine Malbec at Malbec World Day.  Five Argentine wines (pictured below) were chosen in all, and we are honored to have been among those on this exclusive list. 

Malbec World Day is a celebration of Argentina's star Malbec varietal, which accounts for more than 50% of the country's exports of bottled wine.  The celebration began in Buenos Aires, and extended throughout 55 cities in 44 countries around the globe.  Of note: one of the other five wineries chosen was from Bodega Monteviejo, for which our own Senior Wine Advisor Marcelo Pelleriti is the winemaker.  So congratulations to Marcelo, for getting two of his wines on this very short list!
