About This Wine

When it comes to “orphan” wine grapes, there is no more welcoming country than Argentina.

Historically, Malbec was one of the six grape varieties allowed in the making of Bordeaux red wines. It was popular across the country, grown in 30 French departments. But by 2000, only about 15,000 acres of Malbec remained in production. However, it found a new home in Argentina, and today is that country’s signature wine.

Likewise, the Bonarda variety originated in France — the Savoy region, to be precise — but today is planted most heavily in Argentina. In fact, it trails only Malbec in total acreage, and used to be No. 1 before Malbec surpassed it.

Bonarda’s aroma and flavor spectrum has been compared to that of Pinot Noir, and Old Winery’s 2016 vintage does have a hint of that strawberry-like characteristic associated with Pinot. We’re glad the people of Argentina welcomed Bonarda and kept its legacy alive.
