The Wine Dynasty of Argentina
Bodega Catena Zapata
Founded by Nicola Catena, an Italian immigrant who planted his first vineyard in Mendoza, Argentina in 1902. Currently managed by the 4th generation of Catena, it is one of the few Argentinean-owned wineries left.
In the early 1980s, Nicolás Catena began planting Malbec at high altitudes of 3000 to 5000 feet above sea level and cultivated excellent quality berries with high concentration, complexity & balance.
Bodega Catena Zapata was recently awarded 5th placing in the World's Best Vineyard 2019, bringing Argentinean fine wines to greater heights and beyond.
Catena Zapata Malbec Argentino 2015
The epic tale of the noble Malbec grape is like no other, and the label for Catena Zapata Malbec Argentino pays tribute to the variety’s history in France and its rise in Argentina. Four female figures embody different landmarks in the history of the grape. Eleanor of Aquitaine represents the birth of Malbec. She is a strong, Old World presence, lingering at the bridge in Cahors, where Malbec came into its own. Next, the Immigrant symbolizes the movement to the New World and the unknown explorers and adventurers who connected Europe with the Americas. Phylloxera personifies the death of Malbec in the Old World, which enabled its rebirth in the new. Finally, there is Bodega Catena Zapata, represented by Adrianna Catena, who depicts birth, earth, and motherhood, sharing the riches of the New World.
A wine that represents a family's journey for over 100 years, producing Argentinean Malbec that can stand with the great wines of the world.
