Be Malbec

Argentina is Malbec. Malbec for wine lovers has an argent flag. The best Malbecs are Argentines.


 Malbec  is a grape variety belonging to Vitis vinifera, a type of grape suitable for vinification. Of French origin, its term refers to “mal” - “bec” i.e., “mal - Pico” or “bad mouth”. This is because in France this strain was considered a varietal cut, to assemble blendso blends, together with other varietals; but it did not bring character, because of its lack of typicality or particularities that were not up to the style of the great French wines.

From the 90s, when Argentina reorganized its vineyards, due to a disease in the grape called phylloxera, new varietals were replanted, mostly imported from France, Italy and Spain.

Thus, the   Malbec   of so little French lineage lands on our soils and begins to express itself in a special way, characteristic of the difference between the water-soil-climate-heightfactors on sea level and amplitude thermal-hand of man- etc... and so we could continue to mention aspects that make what is called Terroir or Terroir, in French.

In Creole:  Malbec  liked Argentina more than its ancient homeland, expressing in its aromas red fruits, flowers and spices that it did not previously reflect.

With the contribution of wood in its different ways of vinifying it,  Malbec  achieved a leading role since then, which in no other part of the planet could be equalized.

Once again, Argentina found a way to stand out in the world of wine internationally, thanks to the arrival of  Malbec .

Along with him they also approached winemakers from different latitudes to work this strain and experience styles of wines, which the world loved when tasting them.

The range of bottles from different  wineries  of our flagship varietal is infinite, because in each harvest, we get characteristics that make them unique.

If today we are  Messi ,  Pope Francis,   Borges  or  Atahualpa  ... we're also  Malbec .
