The New York Public Library was aglow with the colors of Argentina in honor of World Malbec Day on April 14, 2011. The party was hosted by the Consul General of Argentina in New York, Ambassador Jose Luis Perez-Gabilondo. Twenty-three Argentine wineries participated by serving wine to an appreciative crowd filled with both wine lovers and lovers of the culture of Argentina.

The Malbec was introduced to Argentina in the mid-19th century, when President Domingo Sarmiento hired the French agronomist Michel Pouget to run the school of agriculture in Mendoza. Pouget brought cuttings and seeds to plant, and so the cultivation of Malbec began.
