Wineries to Watch 2014

Mendoza, Argentina: Zuccardi


These are times of radical change in Zuccardi. Sebastian Zuccardi, third-generation owner, has led this traditional winery from Mendoza to explore the region in search of new flavors for its wines. At their new winery in Altamira, they are creating a series of wines deeply identified with their origins. Today, Zuccardi has a battery of malbecs, bonardas and even cabernet sauvignon with a strong sense of place, wines that capture this moment of profound change in Argentina today. If you want an example, taste the refreshing and juicy Polígono San Pablo, which comes in at a relatively low 12 percent alcohol. It’s a style of malbec that’s completely new in Argentina.
