About Malbec World Day: An initiative of the Wines of Argentina consortium of producers, Malbec World Day is dedicated to establishing Argentinean Malbec as the indisputable benchmark of the varietal around the world. Special activities, wine tastings, and celebrations are organized in many countries to honour the iconic Argentinean grape. The success of the first Malbec World Day in 2011 has inspired Wines of Argentina to make the event an annual occurrence.
