CALLIA MALBEC 2021 BY BODEGAS SALENTEIN
At WineOnline we continue to concentrate our efforts on finding great newly discovered wines, at very approachable prices like Callia Malbec 2021 by Bodegas Salentein. And when you do your homework, you can find wines that deliver incomparable value-for-dollar made by some of the glitziest producers around.
One such producer is the legendary Jose “Pepe” Galante of Bodegas Salentein, an Argentine winemaker in the Uco Valley, Mendoza who is considered by many to be the father of modern wine making in Argentina and one of the most influential winemakers in the country.
Bodegas Salentein produces a remarkable collection of wines from vineyards planted at some of the highest elevations on the planet. We love getting our hands on delicious wines at reasonable prices, and being able to offer them to you.
Salentein’s “Callia Malbec” is one such wine. This wine has made a handful of repeated appearances here on WineOnline since we first brought it in last year – and the fact it sells out each and every time we have the chance to offer it, reminds me just how good it really is.
The price and quality is sensational here at under $16 bucks!

Bodegas Salentein is located in Mendoza, an Argentinian province that is synonymous with wine. The soil in this region is sandy and loamy, and the weather, dry, with very hot days and very cool nights. The presence of over 900 bodegas and 145 thousand hectares (358 thousand acres), of vineyards explain why this region is the most important wine-making area of the country. However, this land has much more to say. This is Bodegas Salentein’s belief, and it acts in consequence, spreading at an international level the emergence of first-rate bodegas in Argentina.
