“World Malbec consumption amounts barely 3% and the limit is still far away”

In an interview with Vinos & Bodegas, Mario Giordano, manager of Wines of Argentina, talked about the present and future of the industry within a complex context

Last year, with an increasing loss of exchange competitiveness and wine-producing countries having aggressive price policies, the Argentine wine had no great results in the world.

Bottled and bulk wine exports ended 2013 with a drop of almost 2% in terms of volume. However, in value, numbers showed no changes in comparison with the previous period, since turnover experienced an increase as a result of a 2.4% boost in the average export price.

“It is a situation that has been noticed since 2011, with a gradual loss of competitiveness within medium and medium-low price segments. Today, Argentina has lost opportunities,” maintained Mario Giordano, manager of Wines of Argentina, entity in charge of promoting Argentina wine in international markets.

In relation to the present and future of Malbec, varietal accounting for the half of exports of local wineries, Giordano stressed: “the world Malbec consumption amounts barely 3% and the limit is still far away.”

The origin of red grapes’ names -Malbec

They are always present when we talk about wine: Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, etc. But, how did they get their names? Where are their names from? Are they scientific or mythological, modern or old words? Get to know below how the names of some of the well-known red grapes were originated.
The source of the grape varieties’ name is really controversial, and there is few documentary evidence of it. When carrying out a research, we can find one, two or three possible origins. This article includes those stories most supported and accepted about the origin of the name of some grapes.


The story says that a Hungarian nursery owner, whose surname was Malbek, was the first person to discover this grape and spread it out across France, and then Bordeaux. Later, the word Malbek was altered, replacing “k” by “c”, meaning in French “bad mouth”, referring to the disagreeable and bitter taste this grape displayed in that region.
