Malbec World Day - April 17th

  • BY Lizzy Butler

Even though we like to celebrate Malbec everyday, grab a glass and share a toast to Argentina's flagship grape on April 17th! 

Not all Malbecs taste the same, and this varietal has a diverse flavor profile that makes it a versatile food friendly wine. While great paired with meat, consider trying Malbec with everything from medium cheeses to pastas, grilled veggies and pizza.
