We caught up with Laura Catena, fourth generation and Managing Director of Bodega Catena Zapata, at the recent Vancouver International Wine Festival, where she was inundated by malbec and Catena Zapata fans as she stood by her booth.
It's no wonder they were all clamouring for her time. Laura shares her genuine charm and intense intelligence with anyone who wants to talk about wine. In our latest video, you get the chance to hear and see Laura in action as she share's the ancient journey of malbec from Europe to Argentina and then tracks its modern transformation in the hands of the Catena family, which has led to its worldwide recognition and countless accolades for the family. As the founder of the Catena Institute of Wine, a research facility created to fully understand everything about their vines, soil and climate, Laura explains why she imagines malbec has succeeded over the centuries, specifically in Argentina.
