How did Argentina and its Malbec wines grow from near obscurity, oenologically speaking, to international prominence so rapidly? Wine journalist Ian Mount tells, with clarity — and yet no loss of complexity — the colorful story of how a French grape turned the unlikely region into a wine-producing powerhouse. With lively tales of backroom dealings, brilliant schemes, and big dreams, there’s a lot to savor for the discerning palate.
