The IWSR, which is predicated in the UK, is the alcoholic beverage industry’s most trusted, accurate, and widely used source for beverage alcohol trends on the earth for over 50 years. The report cited the brand’s continued growth with annual e-commerce and retail sales exceeding US$270 million globally, placing Trivento Winery, a subsidiary of the Viña Concha y Toro Family of Wineries, atop the list of Argentina’s best-selling winemakers.

Trivento’s wineries are positioned on 1,637 hectares of vineyards, some well over 100 years old, planted within the principal winegrowing regions in Luján de Cuyo, Valle de Uco, Maipú and the Eastern Oasis of Mendoza.

Trivento is taken from the phrase ‘tres vientos’ (three winds), which refers back to the Polar, Zonda and Sudestada winds that converge across the Mendoza province, giving rise to a terroir that has proven to be ideal for the planting of grapes from which epic wines are created. The unique characteristics of two of Mendoza’s coveted subregions, Luján de Cuyo and Uco Valley, are highlighted in three of their distinct wines: Eolo, a single-vineyard luxury Malbec made out of century-old vines; Golden Reserve, a passionate expression of treasured and historic Malbec vines; and Reserve, a beloved collection crafted predominantly from estate vines that features the ascendant Maximum Red Mix and the #3 best-selling Malbec within the US

The Trivento Eolo Malbec, a mix of 90 per cent Malbec and 10 per cent Syrah, which was first released in 2008, is known as the ‘Guardian of the Winds’ with its grapes growing high above the northern bank of the Mendoza River. This Malbec is produced from vineyards, first planted in 1912, which can be positioned 983 metres above sea level within the Lujan De Cuyo subregion. The wine’s color is a vibrant garnet red with purple reflections and a gap scent of cinnamon, chamomile and tea.

Arguably the winery’s flagship wine, the Trivento Reserve Malbec is Bodega Trivento’s most successful range because it became the top-selling Argentinian wine brand in Europe and primary Malbec within the UK in 2013. Made up of 100 per cent Malbec grapes from vineyards in each Lujan De Cuyo and Uco Valley, it was named best ‘Value Red Wine’ of the 12 months, scoring 92 points, by Tim Atkin, as he presented the outcomes of his 2022 Argentina Special Report, detailing the country’s wines and best vintages.
