Federico Boxaca of Familia Schroeder talks to us about the relatively new wine region of Patagonia in Southern Argentina. The region is 800km south of Mendoza and, being cooler, the vineyards are at lower altitudes than in the north. Patagonia is located at 39 degrees latitude south and enjoys a regular climate with little frost. The popular grapes are Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon and Pinot Noir. Click to listen to the Interview

Andrea Wine and Food for Everyone
I get by with a little help from my friends when it comes to wine and food, and my Local Flavor show was no exception. For every episode John and I tapped into our insider buddies for all the wine and food scene best bets. I couldn’t have done better in Buenos Aires: Vintner and gallery owner Ernesto Catena, top sommeliers Andres Rosberg and Marcelo Rebole, and my long-time friend and closed-door restaurateur Dan Perlman. Whether this is just a virtual visit or you planning a trip for Argentina’s wine harvest, now you, too are in good hands!
Wine, Food, People & Places in this Episode: Be sure to look up Marcelo Rebole at the Park Hyatt (he’s a cheese sommelier too!), sommelier Andres Rosberg, Dan Perlman at Casa Saltshaker, and Ernesto Catena at his gallery – when you visit Buenos Aires.

Michael Broadbent, Angelo Gaja, Baron Eric de Rothschild, Serge Hochar and other iconic figures of the wine world have paid tribute to Decanter’s Man of the Year 2009 – Nicolas Catena.
At a dinner at the Argentinian ambassador’s residence in London, Decanter publishing director Sarah Kemp described the inspiration that drives the renowned Mendoza producer.
‘Around the world, wine lovers think no more of buying an Argentinian wine than they do a French or Australian one. The reason is largely down to you. You have the vision, courage and drive to show the world that great wines can be made in Argentina.’ Read the full article in Decanter Magazine Lee mas

France’s largest wine-making investment in Argentina has turned 10 years old. The “Clos de los Siete” project is a collaborative effort between seven French families, each with a chateau in the Bordeaux region. They share 850 hectares of vineyards in Argentina and now export their wine to over 40 countries.
Malbec is one of the fastest growing varietals in the wine world. So DrinkThisTV.com went to BevMo! and bought a bunch of inexpensive Malbecs. We tasted them blind to find out which was the best for you to go out and buy right now. FYI -this tasting caused a furious argument between our hosts. Check it out!

Argentine wine makers have seen business boom over the past five years, but now fear the effects of the global economic crisis.
With wine lovers’ pockets hit by the global economic crisis, Argentina’s vineyards are booming as trade becomes more competitive. Argentina has joined the ranks of other New World wine-making regions, with a significant increase in exports. It can offer lower prices in a market which has been dented by a lack of consumer confidence.
