Description

Trapiche Estacion 1883 Malbec is made from grapes sourced from the Los Arboles vineyard in Tunuyan, Uco Valley, Mendoza.

Trapiche is one of the most renowned and influential wine producers in Argentina, with a rich history dating back over 130 years. Founded in 1883, the winery was built next to a train station (Estacion is Spanish for station) and the Trapiche Estacion 1883 range of wines commemorates this. The Trapiche winery itself is located in Mendoza in the foothills of the Andes. and the proximity of the Station allowed barrels of wine to be easily loaded onto the railway wagons and gave Trapiche an extra advantage in getting their wines to market and onward to ports for export. Trapiche has played a pivotal role in introducing the world to the exceptional grape varieties and winemaking traditions of this vibrant South American wine region.

They represent the richness of diversity in Argentina, with over 1000 ha of their own vineyards and taking advantage of the different soils and climates, Trapiche has specialised in obtaining the best fruit from their “terroir”.
