We tasted a lot of different malbec wines on the wine tour in Argentina in February. We also tried some bonarda, but perhaps not enough…

Bonarda is not so well known but it is actually the second most important red wine variety in Argentina. It can make some delicious wines. Perhaps not super-ultra-platinum-premium but very lovely drinking wines that can go well with the Argentinian food.

That too we had plenty of occasions to test in Argentina!

Read more on BKWine Magazine on the interesting bonarda grape that is gaining market share and that should really not be called bonarda at all!

We have the next wine and food tour to Argentina and Chile scheduled for February. Book your seat now!
