Argentina

Exploring Wine Regions – Argentina is our debut book that has won “Best Travel & Wine Book 2016” and “Best Travel Book 2017”. This first book of the series sprung from my personal quest to find out: Why I have never meet a Malbec I didn’t like. What is Argentina’s secret to producing the best Malbec?

Argentina offers so much more than the Malbec. Our journey unveiled the Bonarda, Tempranillo and Torrontés just to name a few. And tango. Wow! A most beautiful dance to go with the beauty of their people and landscape. There is so much to see and do here. Jump into all the adventures Argentina has to offer.

Follow us to the top three wine regions of this magnificent country. Mendoza produces extraordinarily great Malbec that put Argentina on the map as the fifth largest wine country in the world. Salta boasts the highest elevation vineyards in the world. And Patagonia makes delicious Pinot Noirs thanks to its cool climate.

Come inside and see firsthand Familia Zuccardi, Valentin Bianchi, Achaval-Ferrer, Bodega Salentein, Humberto Canale, Bodega Colomé, Del Fin Del Mundo, and much more.

A must-have book for those wanting to explore one of the world’s top wine regions. And learn the answers to my burning question.
