Photographer's Note

Brought from the Bordeuax region of France in the mid-19th century, Malbec is considered the symbolic grape of Argentina. It has adapted so well to the climate of Mendoza that today the region produces almost 60% of Malbec wines from around the world.

At the Tierras Altas winery, I had the opportunity to make a visit called the "Malbec Experience", where we started out tasting a Malbec Rosé, shown in the main picture. Then we tasted a Malbec Red straight from the stainless steel tanks, that can be seen in the first workshop, where the wine is stored during the first year. Heading to the winery cellar, we tasted the wine in its next storage stage, the oak barrels of the second workshop. You can also see in this last photo a bottle on the table, unlabeled and dusty, that contained the most expected liquid of the tour: a 2004 Malbec reserve! Cheers!
