“Nobody knows more about the Argentinian wine business than Laura Catena (except maybe her father, Nicolás). Laura´s new book will certainly be the bible in this subject.”Baron Eric de Rothschild, Château Lafite
In this book—part wine primer, part cultural exploration, part introduction to the Argentine lifestyle—discover where to eat, what to see, and how to fit in with Laura Catena, the Argentina-born, United States-educated, globetrotting wine star. The world’s fifth largest producer of wine, Argentina is home to malbec, the country’s best-known indigenous grape and the fastest growing wine import into the United States.
More than 400,000 Americans visit Argentina every year to experience the mighty malbec, taste unparalleled grass-fed beef, trek the wide-open country, and tango all night long in Buenos Aires, “the Paris of South America.” These visitors travel with Laura in Vino Argentino, the only travel journal that provides insider access to the unique wine regions, wineries, shops, bars, galleries and restaurants of vast, beautiful Argentina.
