The week in pictures

On Wednesday, db caught up with the winemakers, marketing and sales directors of some of Argentina’s biggest wineries at the Barullo Sessions tasting in Clerkenwell, London.

The likes of Catena Zapata, Bodegas Norton and Viñalba were all in attendance, showing attendees from the trade and consumers alike the new directions they’re taking wine wine production in Mendoza.

A fair few estates in the region are starting to pay closer attention to terroir. One of these is Bodegas Staphyle, which has just launched a brand new Malbec made with grapes grown in Potrerillos is a district in Mendoza.

David Bonomi of Bodega Norton and Per Se gave a masterclass in London on the subject of changing winemaking in Argentina and a deep dive into Cabernet Franc.

Not everyone believes sub-regions are the way forward for Argentina’s winemakers. Diane Fabre of Viñalba told db that it is still too soon to start using microclimates as a sales tool to attract consumers.

“We still have quite a lot of space to grow with Mendoza,” she said.
