Fin del Mundo
I have a love affair with Argentina. The people are among the friendliest in the world, the food is sensational, and the wines are simply to die for. Ian Mount’s new book The Vineyard at the End of the World explores this country that was once scoffed at for its oxidized wines, yet is now one of the major power players in the international wine scene. The book profiles the personalities who helped Argentina put Malbec on the map, including famed enologist Michel Rolland, American winemaker Paul Hobbs and the powerful Catena family. A brilliant insight into the history and success of one of my favorite wine regions, The Vineyard at the End of the World, available in stores and online for $27, is a fascinating read that will make you appreciate your glass of Malbec all the more.
