Happy Malbec Day

Well, well, well — it’s finally spring, April is in full swing, and we are all mandated by the government to enjoy it ALONE from the comfort of our own homes. I don’t know that any season of life has ever warranted our desperate need for a national wine holiday more than this one, right?!

But fear not, beloved Quaranteam — international Malbec Day is here to save the day…or week..or month? Or however long this quarantine lasts! Basically, it’s here to save the day for as many days as you need it to! 

Today, to celebrate, we’re featuring one of our absolute favorite bottles, Espuela Del Gaucho Malbec. This Malbec boasts an incredible flavor, marked by hints of dark cherries and plum that mix effortlessly with notes of vanilla and chocolate. Basically, trust us when we say you should probably go ahead and buy more than one bottle because you’re not going to want this one to end. Plus — quarantine — you feel us?!

We paired this Malbec with some Pretzel Thins and a pair of Murray cheeses. We used both English Cheddar as well as their North Sea Cheese and we highly recommend both. They are the perfect pairing to compliment your glass (bottle?) of Malbec.

In all seriousness, though, we hope you & your loved ones are all staying healthy and safe during this crazy time! We think now is the perfect time to pour yourself a glass of wine, and take a moment to truly unwind, be it alone or with your quarantine partner — 6 feet apart, of course! 

Cheers and happy Malbec Day, friends!
