Malbec in numbers
Acres planted with Malbec in Argentina. That is roughly 8 times the size of Manhattan.
Liters of Malbec exported by Argentina in 2020. That’s enough Malbec to fill up over 65 Olympic size swimming pools.
The highest vineyard is located at this altitude, in the Northwest of Argentina. That's five times higher than the Shanghai Tower.
Since 2011, every year around the world we pay homage to our flagship grape. Malbec brings us together. So, whether you are in Europe, South America, the US, Canada, or even China, join the celebration!
Why April 17th?
On 17th April, 1853 the first agricultural school in Argentina was founded, 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.
