Summary, etc.:
The buzz among wine connoisseurs and novices alike, is one word - Malbec. Originally from France, Malbec found its perfect home, its perfect terroir in the dry Argentine climate. Its booming popularity has swept through the US and the world, reviving a varietal that has been nearly lost. Documenting how an inexpensive blend originally only intended for local demand rising to become an international star, <i>Boom Varietal</i> interviews winemakers spearheading the rise of Malbec, wine connoisseurs, as well as foreign investors hoping to profit from the boom. <i>Boom Varietal</i> will inspire not only your palate, but a love for Argentina's rich culture.
