Flight: Malbec Regions of Argentina
Argentina is currently the largest producer of Malbec
in the world, and it is grown extensively in every
wine region of the country, from Salta to Patagonia.
Malbec expresses itself very well in regions with broad
temperature ranges and calcareous, clayey or sandy
soils such as those found at the foot of the Andes.
These geographic and climatic features make Argentine
Malbec stand out particularly for the quality of its
tannins: sweet, silky and mouth-filling.

of sun. Malbec from this region expresses a
unique personality: aromas of very ripe red
fruits, black pepper and paprika, with a very

notes. Red fresh
such as raspberry, strawberry and cherry combine
a spicy aroma given by the use of oak. This
wine can be cellared up to four years.

in nearly every direction and dominated by

vineyards. The province harbors several of
the country’s most highly reputed wineries,
offer biodynamic vineyards, award-winning architecture
and design, and creative chef collaborations.
