Trivento, a leading estate in Mendoza, Argentina, and its U.S. importer Excelsior Wines, North America’s largest importer of South American wines, are proud to announce that Trivento has been named a 2016 Impact Hot Prospect Wine Brand. Hot Prospect status recognizes growth of + 15% over 2015, with depletions for the same period ranging between 50,000 and 200,000 9-liter cases, supported by consistent growth during each of the two years prior. According to Impact the designation highlights “emerging wine brands that are poised to become household names in the years ahead.”
The accolade signals a dramatic comeback by Trivento, after ranking in Impact’s highly competitive Hot Prospect Wine Brands awards category three years in a row, in 2009, 2010 and 2011. Trivento becomes the only Argentine winery to make it into this year’s list of “Hot Prospect Wine Brands.
