Malbec is Argentina’s flagship 'signature' red grape and is grown in all the country's wine regions, from North to South, from altitudes of 600m to the very highest at over 2000m.
Today Argentina is the largest producer of Malbec in the world. When it was first brought to Mendoza from Bordeaux ("Cot") it thrived in the dry climate so much so that Malbec is now recognised as being in the vanguard of Argentina's growing premium wine reputation worldwide.Malbec grapes are very susceptible to rot and mildew, and therefore very difficult to grow in damp conditions associated with a reasonable amount of rainfall. That includes its home in Bordeaux
