Argentina has gone screwy!

Argentinian wine producer is getting on the screwcap bandwagon.


One Great Wine Deserves One Good Turn; Falling Star Wines Now Available in Screw Caps
NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Jan. 7, 2005–What happens when you dress up
an old-time favorite with a new style? You get Falling Star in screw
cap closures! Repackaged and relabeled last fall, Falling Star is the
first winery from Argentina in its category to be exporting still wine
to the US marketplace with the screw cap closures.

“Along with improved quality due to better sourcing and vineyard
practices”, explained John Little, brand manager for Falling Star, “we
decided to set a precedent for Argentina by introducing the screw cap
closures to the Falling Star line of wines. ‘One good wine deserves one
good turn’ is the tag line that describes Falling Star’s new
eye-catching and accessible wines,” continued Little, “it is Falling
Star’s turn to shine in the New Year.” Voted “Value Brand of the Year”
by Wine and Spirits Magazine in 2004, the wines, sourced from some of
the very best terroirs of Argentina, have experienced a leap in quality
and are now over-delivering for the price.

Falling Star
Chardonnay, Cabernet, Merlot/Malbec and Sauvignon Blanc/Semillon are
available in 750ml size and at retail locations nationwide for a
suggested retail price of $4.99.

I just tried an amazing new wine from Lujan de Cuyo, Mendoza, Argentina — called Belasco de Baquedano Malbec. It’s 100-Year Old Vine, but just introduced in the U.S., its website says ( I had the Llama, and there are three others (Swinto, AR Guentota, Rosa rose) all from the same Malbec estate. Have you tried this? What do you think? I was amazed at how low the price is, about $15 for the Llama. Are all Argentine malbecs so excellent?
