In 2005, the Bonnie family, owners Bordeaux estates Château Malartic-Lagravière (Grand Cru Classé de Graves) and Château Gazin Rocquencourt (Pessac-Léognan), decided to leave France in search for new horizons in the world of wine. They landed in the heart of Argentina’s Uco Valley, just south of Mendoza. Here, Bodega DiamAndes was born, a pun on the words "diamante" (Spanish for "diamond") and Andes (the name of the mountains that provide a background to the estate). An original blend of Malbec and Syrah, the wine is full bodied and rich, with ripe red, black and blue berries, silky tannins, and an intense, powerful finish. This wine sings alongside chicken, duck,
and grilled meats.
