DESCRIPTION:

We loved this wine last vintage before release, but we fretted - has the Malbec trend run its course? Like a vinous finger wag, the success of last year's debut vintage answered with an unmistakable, "No!" It was one of the best-selling wines in the entire Flying Blue portfolio.

 

We worked diligently to find Malbec of such breed and logged hundreds of hours traveling to Mendoza to establish the relationships necessary to make the kind of Malbec that we like. Ironically, our winemaker for Pasarica has never set foot on a plane and is descended from true Argentinian Gaucho stock. Having learned on the job from some of Mendoza’s pioneers, every bottle of Pasarica is endowed with the passion, energy, experience and knowledge of a true child of the land.
 

PASARICA
- A CELEBRATION OF ARGENTINA:

Argentina, the fifth largest wine producing country in the world, is a country of contrasts. From Alpine peaks to verdant jungles, high desert to rugged coastline, Argentina is one of the most attractive tourist designations in the world.

 

Known as one of the friendliest wine regions on Earth, the Mendoza locals are always ready to welcome visitors to their beautiful region, with the Andes as a backdrop. If you can’t make it, we are proud that enjoying a glass of Pasarica is the next best thing – Argentina in a glass.
