Covering most of the southern tip of South America, Argentina’s extremely large winemaking territory - marked by often dizzying altitudes (up to above 3000m) and sheltered by a boarder of the snow capped Andean mountains - delivers sun-drenched grapes that are ripened to perfection year after year.
Wine in Argentina today reflects both past and present - bringing together the wisdom of tradition with the expertise and know-how of modern technology. The combination of our Spanish, Italian, French and native heritage has nurtured several generations of intelligent, sensitive, and creative wine producers.
Today Argentina continues to draw a myriad of distinguished winemakers and investment from around the world, creating an environment where knowledge sharing and experimentation are central themes and industry development continuous.
From dark, vivacious Malbec-based reds, to the distinctive indigenous Torrontés, Argentina is increasingly recognised as one of the most exciting wine producing countries on the planet. Exports of our wines continue to grow at approximately 20% each year, making us one of the fastest growing nations in the wine world. In 2011 they are forecast to rise above $700m for the first time.
