Today (April 17) is World Malbec Day! For that occasion I thought I’d bring you an interesting article by Mike Veseth, the “Wine Economist,” exploring some of the economical and cultural dimensions of this wonderful varietal. I’ve been pretty friendly to Malbec before on my blog, having run Robert Horvat’s terrific guest post on the history of South American wine. Think of Mike’s article as a counterpoint to that one, discussing the future of this wine. Great job!
