In a country where the wine tradition is as rooted in its culture as tango, soccer and asados, Malbec has gained a special place as an Argentine Embassador on the international stage. A classic varietal of excellence, well known around the world, and in constant reinvention by a generation of innovating winemakers willing to take Malbec far beyond the imaginable. With the slogan “Malbec Argentino: You Know me and you don´t” this year the emphasis will be on the richness and diversity of a varietal with so much potential to be discovered.
The Malbec World Day is celebrated on this date because on April 17th of 1853, with the support of the Mendoza Governor at the time,Pedro Pascual Segura, a bill was presented in the provincial senate, which intended to establish the School of Agriculture. The law was approved on September 6 that same year.

Malbec World Day is celebrated in over fifty countries worldwide and continues to grow every year.
