Malbec World Day is celebrated on April 17, to commemorate the day when president Domingo Faustino Sarmiento of Argentina officially made it his mission to transform Argentina’s wine industry. On that day, back in 1853, he tasked Michel Aimé Pouget, a French soil expert, to bring over new vines. Amongst his selection, was Malbec. The rest is history, today Malbec is Argentina’s star varietal.
Malbec wines are full bodied with plump, dark fruit flavors and smoky finish. Malbec wine is not as heavy as Cabernet or as sweet as Chianti, but it’s definitely robust enough to match with the heartiest of dishes. It even pairs well with some heartier fish entrees, such as swordfish, tuna steaks, or salmon. Consider giving Malbec a go with any of your favorite beef, game, lamb, chili, stews, mushrooms, sausage, and barbecue sauces. Perfect wine for summer BBQ’S!
