    Terrazas de los Andes
    Terrazas de los Andes is part of a long tradition of French-influenced Argentinian winemaking that began in the early 19th century, when a small group of French specialists travelled to South America, seeking to introduce French winemaking techniques and grape varieties.

    A century later in 1959, Robert Jean de Vogue, president of Moët-Chandon, had the foresight to recognize the potential of Argentina and to select it as the location of the company's first subsidiary outside of France. Worthy heirs of these pioneers, the founders of Terrazas de los Andes saw the singularity of Argentina's terroirs, and had the vision and the audacity to unite France's long and rich winemaking heritage with local tradition and talent. Thus was born Terrazas de los Andes, in 1996.

    Over the years, the team has been dedicated to carefully select the best altitude terroirs in Mendoza, both in Lujan de Cuyo and the Uco Valley, as well as Salta for our Torrontes, to deliver the ideal freshness and alluvial soil diversity for each type of grape.

    Thriving in the unique natural conditions of the Andean Mountains, Malbec has come to embody Argentinian identity. Our Malbec wines, produced with hand harvested grapes from select high altitude vineyards, epitomize generosity and intensity, offering a large variety of expressions and high-quality tannins. They are particularly appreciated for their silkiness and ample mouthfeel.

    By far the largest and best-known winemaking province in Argentina, Mendoza is responsible for over 70% of the country’s enological output. Set in the eastern foothills of the Andes Mountains, the climate is dry and continental, presenting relatively few challenges for viticulturists during the growing season. Mendoza is divided into several distinctive sub-regions, including Luján de Cuyo and the Uco Valley—two sources of some of the country’s finest wines.

    For many wine lovers, Mendoza is practically synonymous with Malbec, originally a Bordelaise variety brought to Argentina by the French in the mid-1800s. Here it found success and renown it never could have achieved in its homeland due to its struggle to ripen fully in finicky climates. Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Merlot, and Pinot Noir are all widely planted here as well (and often blended with one another. The best white wines are made from Chardonnay, and there are excellent examples to be found as well from Torrontés, Sauvignon Blanc, and Sémillon.

    Known for its big, bold flavors and supple texture, Malbec is most famous for its runaway success in Argentina. However, the variety actually originates in Bordeaux, where it historically contributed color and tannin to blends but was susceptible to viticultural problems. After being nearly wiped out by a devastating frost in 1956, it was never significantly replanted, although it did flourish under the name Côt in nearby Cahors. Malbec was brought to Argentina in 1868 by a French agronomist who saw great potential for the variety in Mendoza’s hot, high-altitude landscape, but did not gain its current reputation as the national grape of Argentina until a surge in popularity in the late 20th century thanks to its easy-going drinkability.

    In the Glass

    Malbec typically expresses deep flavors of freshly turned earth, black fruits from berries to plums, and licorice, appropriately backed by dense, chewy tannins. In warmer, New World regions, such as Mendoza, it can be quite intense and often needs time to mellow before becoming drinkable. In the Old World, its rusticity shines, with aged examples showing dusty notes of leather and tobacco. The best examples in all regions often possess a beguiling bouquet of violets.

    Perfect Parings

    Malbec’s rustic character begs for flavorful dishes, like spicy grilled sausages or the classic cassoulet of France’s Southwest. South American iterations are best enjoyed as they would be in Argentina: with a thick, juicy steak.

    Sommelier Secret

    If you’re trying to please a crowd, Malbec is generally a safe bet. With its combination of bold flavors and soft tannins, it will appeal to basically anyone who enjoys red wine. Malbec also wins bonus points for affordability, as even the most inexpensive examples are often quite good.
