Trapiche is located in Mendoza, Argentina at the foothills of the Andes Mountains. Spanish conquistadors first brought grape varietal seeds to South America to produce wine. Many Europeans immigrated to Argentina and planted vineyards at the foothills of the Andes. Malbec was brought to Argentina by a Frenchman, reportedly on April 17, 1853—World Malbec Day is now celebrated on the 17th of April. In the late 1980s, the Argentinean economy collapsed, and the wine industry suffered. The government encouraged the pulling up of older Malbec vineyards. New economic policies and foreign investment of the 1990s resulted in modern technology for wineries. Malbec was once again positioned as a top grape varietal, producing bold, plush wines with international appeal that were export-ready. Wines from Argentina were rapidly recognized as offering value and quality, and Malbec grew in popularity, being regarded as a friendly, easy-drinking red wine with broad consumer appeal.
