Case of six
The Zuccardi family were the first to plant organically in Argentina’s Mendoza wine region. They have farmed sustainably for three generations and constantly strive for ways to reduce packaging costs, energy consumption and water usage. They even have their own wormery which composts the grape skins and stems for organic fertiliser. Their passion for the land is repaid with grapes of the most intense flavour and quality.

Yes, this a dry red wine that’s a perfect partner for meat or Mediterranean food.
Although similar in style, the real difference between Rioja and Malbec lies in their ageing potential. Gran Reserva Rioja can be cellared for up to 30 years.
