9780393344172: The Vineyard at the End of the World: Maverick Winemakers and the Rebirth of Malbec

"A definite must-read for Malbec drinkers everywhere.”―Lettie Teague, WSJ.com

As wine connoisseurs know, Argentine wine was once famously bad. The grapes were overwatered, harvested in brutal heat, fermented in enormous cement pools, aged in antiquated oak vats, and then watered down and adulterated. The final product was industrial plonk, drinkable only on ice. But in 2001, a Cabernet Sauvignon / Malbec blend beat Napa and Bordeaux’s finest in a blind taste test. Suddenly, Argentina emerged as a premier wine region with a champion varietal―what best-selling author Benjamin Wallace calls “the humble Malbec.” How did this happen?

Ian Mount’s vivid journey through Argentina’s Wild West explores the alchemy of weather, soil, and viticulture techniques that, on rare occasions, produce a legendary bottle of wine. He also investigates the dynamics of taste, status, and money that turned Malbec into a worldwide phenomenon.

Profiling the larger-than-life figures who fueled the Malbec revolution―including celebrity oenologist Michel Rolland, acclaimed American winemaker Paul Hobbs, and the Mondavi-esque Catena family―Mount describes in colorful detail the brilliant innovations and backroom politics that put Malbec on the map.

Set against the breathtaking backdrop of the snow-capped Andes and Mendoza’s sweeping plains, The Vineyard at the End of the World tells the fascinating, four-hundred-year story of how a wine mecca arose in the Argentine desert. It is at once a sumptuous travel narrative, a riveting history of a fascinating region, and an intriguing business story in which a small group of passionate vintners remade their world. 13 illustrations

Review:

Mount 's impressive history provides ample regional and global color in a lively addition to wine literature.

This well-informed chronicle captures the distinctive nature of winemaking in a country challenged by an unforgiving climate and political and economic instability. "

An artfully written story of how a poorly developed wine culture grew into one of the best wine regions in the world This engaging, important, and accessible book fills a gap in the literature of wine culture and history. --Lisa Ennis"

Mount s impressive history provides ample regional and global color in a lively addition to wine literature. "

A definite must-read for Malbec drinkers everywhere, and Argentine wine fans. --Lettie Teague"

The rise of Argentine wine and the improbable triumph of the humble Malbec the Seabiscuit of grapes is one of the great untold stories of globalization. As Ian Mount shows with great energy and feeling, the tale is as much about people and their dreams and obsessions as it is about the delicious drink that motivates them. --Benjamin Wallace, The Billionaire s Vinegar"
