Malbec Days, Cahors, France – Part 1

15cahors1main.jpg

If you ask the average wine geek where Malbec comes from, they’re most liable to tell you it’s Argentina. But, that’s just part of the story!

True, Argentina has made the grape justifiably famous over the last two decades or more. However, the grape’s ancestral home is in southwest France, centered around the city of Cahors, where there is a renaissance going on to revive the legacy of the Malbec grape.

Join us we attend Cahors Malbec Days, in Cahors, France. In part 1 we’ll hear from Arnoldo Dimani from Domaine Le Bout du Lieu; Pascal Verhaeghe, from Château du Cèdre; Richard Jennings, from RJ on Wine; and Benjamin Gayraud, from Château Lamartine.
