tim atkin, a renowned wine connoisseur, recently visited argentina (one of my favorite countries, if you haven’t figured that out already) to do some tasting and reasearch and to find some of argentina’s best wines. although he reported his fifty favorites, his excursions including touring vineyards, chatting with locals and trying a total of 450 different varieties. LUCKY.
here are the wines tim considers to be the fifty finest from the region!
not only did he share with readers his favorite wines, he shares with us the development of the region as a wine producer. he says although argentina is known around the world for their malbec, they can do whites, too. they’re still learning and have a lot of room for potential growth, especially in the area of whites. it will be interesting to see where the country goes in the next few years and how the take advantage of the international marketplace.
feliz viaje del vino a argentina! buen provecho!
