Meet the maker
Trapiche Wines, located at the foothills of the Andes Mountains in Mendoza, Argentina, has a long and successful history since its founding in 1883. Being one of the oldest wine brands in Argentina, they are now the largest exported premium wine in the country.
Trapiche is a hugely positive force that drives the national wine industry and economy. Trapiche Wines owns and operates numerous vineyards throughout Argentina that encompass nearly 2,500 acres. They also source grapes from over 200 independent producers, making them a vital part of the agricultural industry.
Originally a French grape, Malbec really took hold of Argentina and now the Malbec is often considered a South American grape. The terroir and soil are ideal for growing Malbec. However, they produce a large variety of other wines that are well-deserving of your attention as well.
