Argentina is known for its football and tango but increasingly for some of the most appealing – and great value – wines in the world. Its vineyards lie at the foot of the Andes mountains in what is essentially a high altitude desert.
Zuccardi is one of the leading producers, founded by Alberto ‘Tito’ Zuccardi whose grandparents came from Italy. He planted a vineyard in the Maipu region in 1963, aiming to show other farmers how his irrigation system worked, not realising that it would lead to the success seen today. His son (Jose Alberto) and grandson (Sebastian) have built on this initiative, sourcing top sites in the Uco valley. In 2019, Zuccardi was awarded “The World’s Best Vineyard” accolade by Decanter Magazine.
