Do you have information about Malbec in the US?

Good day,

Thank you for submitting your request.

Our database has some reports about the wine industry that can meet your needs.  Below are the most recent and relevant.

Report 1 – “Drifting Towards Bordeaux?” Wine Economics Research Centre, May 2015.

This report covers an overview about how the winegrape varietal mix varies within and among states of the United States, and how that picture has been evolving. It shows varietal intensity indexes for different regions, price-based quality indexes across regions, indexes of similarity of varietal mix between regions and varieties within and among the three west-coast States. It includes in each chart where is Malbec positioned.

“The United States (in particular in the premium regions of California and Washington and Oregon, depending on the variety) has increased its relative specialization in production of some varieties in which it was already somewhat specialized—such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Pinot Noir—as well as some in which it was not, namely Syrah, Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc, White Riesling, and Malbec.”
