This could prove especially true in the United States where most retailers tend to group Argentine wines under a catch-all category like “South American wines.” The new bottles are part of the Ecova line which Veralia introduced in 2009 and come in three different sizes to indicate the individual wine’s quality : Maipo (premium), Cuyo (super premium) and Icono (self explanatory).DeNiro, Bono Investing In MendozaPairing is everything when it comes to fine wine and cuisine, and the pairing of theworld’s greatest living actor with one of the world’s best wine producingregions would be “a maridaje increíble.” According to Los Andes, Robert De Niromay soon join the list of celebrities investing in Mendoza vines. The legendary actoris interested in purchasing an approximately 100-acre vineyard in Mendoza. Whilethe deal has not closed, the paper says negotiations for a Mendoza vineyard are fairlyadvanced.
