Cuatro Vacas Gordas (Caligiore Winery)

Cuatro Vacas Gordas (Caligiore Winery)
Videla Correas 381
Mendoza, Argentina
Cuatro Vacas Gordas is a fun, casual wine made by a tiny, dedicated organic wine farmer (Gustavo Caligiore) who is also known for his organic reserve wines.

These are really handcrafted wines at a very affordable price. He makes only organic wines and he is known for it in Argentina. This wine is a blend of Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon. He picks these grapes a bit earlier and doesn’t age it as long so as to make a fresh, fruity wines with good acidity. Since high quality beef and consumption of beef (lots of grilled meat consumed) is abundant/is high in Argentina, this wine label has a playful (almost infantile) feel and fun name – it essentially highlights the affection for and importance of beef in Argentine culture.

This is yet another wine that makes you look at Argentina in another light – not just very traditional wines with boring labels – but a place where producers are also exploring outside of that tradition to make fun, cool wines in different styles as well as exploring new frontiers in winemaking, grape varieties and terroirs.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
