The Consulate of Argentina in Mumbai celebrated the ‘Malbec World Day’, to commemorate the day when
President Domingo Faustino Sarmiento of Argentina officially made it his mission to transform Argentina’s wine industry.
The Consul General, Tomas Ferrari hosted the event at the Taj Mahal Palace in Mumbai. The international celebration, enjoyed in over 50 countries is dedicated entirely to the flagship grape.
“Unlike other wine-producing countries, Argentina offers a non-linear wine route which makes the wine tourism different and interesting. It not only combines the unique landscapes and diversity but also offers a fantastic list of vivid activities bundled with an interactive experience that adds to the fun of visiting an Argentine vineyard. Winemaking here is full of contrasts between tradition and innovation, between energy and excitement, between flavour and refinement,” says Medha Sampat – India Representative for Argentina Tourism.
