BODEGA ARGENTO ADDS THREE NEW ORGANIC UK LISTINGS AS IT TARGETS 100% ORGANIC ON- TRADE PORTFOLIO


Bodega Argento has added a trio of premium organic Argentinian wines to its existing on-trade range with UK distribution partner Bibendum.

Bodega Argento is moving one step closer to its commitment of providing a 100% organic range of premium Argentinian wines to the UK on-trade with the listing of three new organic releases with premium distributor Bibendum.

The move marks another significant phase in Bodega Argento’s brand evolution as Argentina’s largest organic producer accelerates the Argento brand’s transition to 100% organic in the UK on-trade by 2024.

The Argento Organic Fairtrade Rosé 2022, the Argento Estate Reserve Organic Fairtrade Malbec 2021 and the Argento Single Block Organic Malbec 2019 have joined Argento’s two existing listings for organic wines with leading distributor Bibendum: the Argento Estate Reserve Organic Fairtrade Cabernet Franc 2021 and the Argento Single Vineyard Altamira Organic Malbec 2020. In total, 5 out 8 of Argento’s SKUs in the UK on-trade are now organic. 

Santiago Ribisich, General Manager of Argento’s parent company Grupo Avinea, says: ‘We have been on an ambitious journey towards full organic certification for all of our own estates since 2012. With 322 hectares of our own vineyards already certified (and plans to reach 650 hectares in the next five years) we are able to bring more premium organic and single vineyard wines from Argentina to our customers. We are excited to be working in partnership with Bibendum in the UK, the renowned distributor who shares our passion for quality and our commitment to sustainability and best practice.’

Richard Masterson, Buyer for Argentina at Bibendum, comments: ‘Bodega Argento’s strong organic winemaking philosophy and overall commitment to sustainability is coming to life with a range of organic-certified wines from Argentina which deliver on quality and stay true to their Argentinian roots. We are delighted to have these new additions to our growing organic portfolio here at Bibendum and look forward to presenting them to our customers. The first listings with key accounts such as The Hippodrome, Sucre, Randall & Aubin, Greene King Group and Moo Soho are already very encouraging.’

The full range of Argento wines is available to the on-trade from Bibendum Wine and to independent wine shops from Walker Wodehouse. For enquiries, contact Tori Vickerman, vvickerman@bibendum-wine.co.uk.
