Celebrate the malbec grape with this delicious six bottle case.
Argentina have highlighted this date as it is a very important in the history and winemaking for Argentina. On 17th April, 1853 the first agricultural school in Argentina was founded, by French agronomist Michel A. Pouget. in the hopes of adapting French grapes to the soils of Mendoza.
This date is a symbol of the transformation of Argentina’s wine industry and the starting point for the development of Malbec, an emblem for Argentina worldwide.
The case is a selection of 5 Argentinian malbecs with one French malbec, France is where the grape originated and is known as cot, so I felt it would be fun to add this to the selection.
