Greetings from Mendoza!
Hope you are enjoying the warm days of summer while Nick and I are in Mendoza in the dead of winter – and it’s a cold one! We just finished tasting the 2007 vintage and it’s looking absolutely delicious. We are thrilled with the quality of the wines from the VC supplier team and we know you will be too.
June was quite the busy month for the US wine press! Great reviews of several VC wines have appeared over the past several weeks which of course we’re always happy with! But we are especially thrilled with a recent article published by the Wall Street Journal about the impressive rise of Argentine wines, specifically Malbec. It was another confirmation of what we’ve all known for the past couple years: Argentine Wine Is Hot!
Below is a copy of the article for you, along with the latest press on many VC wines. All of which can also be found on our website at www.vineconnections.com.
