We're proud of our longstanding friendship with the legendary Zuccardi family - aka "one of the top names in Argentine wine," according to The Wine Advocate. As our customer, you're on the inside track to this in-demand estate, with exclusive releases you won't see anywhere else.

This gorgeously fresh Torrontés - Argentina's signature white grape - comes from vines growing nearly 3,000 feet up in the Andes. The staggeringly high altitude, brilliant sunshine, and cooling mountain breezes provide the perfect conditions for ripe, fresh grapes. The vineyards are so remote, you practically need mountaineering gear to get there, hence the name Zapapico ('pickaxe').

With its crisp citrus and subtle floral-spice notes, this Torrontés is a fantastic aperitif. It will also pair deliciously with everything from crab empanadas to Thai dishes like phanaeng curry. Simple salads are another winning pick.

Considering the major spotlight that's on the Zuccardis these days (Decanterrecently named third-generation Sebastián one of the Top 10 South American winemakers), you'll want to order quickly. There are only so many bottles to go 'round for thirsty fans.
