Calabria Family Wine Group’s international distribution arm Vintners & Co Merchants has made its way into South America and welcomed Argentinian wine producer Doña Paula to its global wine portfolio.

Established in 1997, Doña Paula is founded on an estate winemaking philosophy with 100 per cent of its fruit sourced from its own vineyards in select areas of the high-altitude Mendoza wine region. While the name is known for producing premium malbec, the winery also produces award-winning torrontés, chardonnay, riesling, cabernet sauvignon and pinot noir.

Doña Paula is also accredited by the Bodegas de Argentina Sustainability Protocol as a certified sustainability managed winery and is one of ten Argentinian wineries to be certified. Its wines are consistently rated highly by international wine critics, with Robert Parker regularly scoring Doña Paula’s malbec releases 90 points and above.

“Doña Paula offers an incredible mix of value for money and premium Argentinian wines that we know Australian wine lovers will enjoy. We have seen the incredible excitement and growth around malbec in the market, so feel confident that Doña Paula will be able to offer a diverse and authentic selection of Argentina’s premier red grape variety here in Australia,” said Sales & Marketing Director, Andrew Calabria said.

The initial portfolio of Doña Paula wines to land in Australia will focus predominantly on the winery’s premium malbecs, commencing with:

  • Dona Paula ‘Paula’ Malbec
  • Dona Paula High Altitude Malbec
  • Dona Paula High Altitude Pinot Noir
  • Seleccion de Bodega Malbec
  • Alluvia Parcel Malbec

Doña Paula joins a selection of premium wine producers in the Vintners & Co. Merchants distribution portfolio, which now includes Deutz Champaign, Dow’s Port, Librandi, and Canti Prosecco.
