During April, the Argentinian website WineSur.com carried out "Malbec Top Design", a wine label contest aimed at spreading the image of the Argentina’s signature varietal around the world, and which joined “Malbec World Day”, celebrated last 17th April all over the world.
More than 100 Argentinian wineries took part in the contest with their labels in four categories: artistic, classic, innovation and modern. All labels have been displayed in WineSur.com, where people may find an image of each, as well as their technical characteristics and their creator’s data. Besides, some comments made by the "Malbec Top Design" jury also appear there.
