Malbec came to Argentina (from Chile!) already in 1850. It was faced with completely different growing conditions than it was used to from southwestern France, in Cahors. Not least a dry climate with only 200-300 mm of rain per year. But the grape adapted quickly.

Already at the time, Mendoza was a major trading city. The wines were transported to Buenos Aires where they were much appreciated. As they still are today. And not only Malbec, but also the other grapes, such as the fresh and aromatic Torrontes. A grape you must discover! Or Cabernet Franc och Sauvignon Blanc in Chile.

We will get to know many different grape varieties during our tour to Argentina and Chile, but it is even more exciting to get to know the ambitious wine producers.
