Argentina wines at their best

Argentina wines at their best

At the bottom of the Andes mountain range, the main Argentine wine regions extend from north to south. With an arid, sunny and dry climate, its vineyards are located between 600 and 2000 meters above sea level, reaching 3000 meters inclusive, which allows the great temperature variation of these desert areas to offer ideal conditions for the cultivation of vines at unthinkable latitudes.

In Argentina are found the vineyards of maximum height in the province of Salta, in the extreme north of the country, considered one of the highest in the world, to the southern ones, located in the province of Chubut, in Patagonia. 

Wine is the national drink of Argentina. This country is the largest wine producer in Latin America and the fifth largest producer in the world, as well as the ninth exporter globally.

 

Its winemaking history dates back to the arrival of European immigration in the early 20th century, mainly from Spain and Italy, which brought European vines and their cultivation and production methods to the country. With them, came Malbec, the French grape that arrived on Argentine soil to become the flagship of this country's wines.

In the 1990s, Argentine wine began to surprise the world, conquering some of the most important wine markets such as the United States and the United Kingdom, thanks to the work of winemakers who sought to express the unique and differential character of their wines.

 

Currently, with a more refined enology, an increasingly risky bet and following the current trends of a less interventionist viticulture, Argentine wines are also gaining popularity in all Europe. In this commitment, producers are going further, making wine from less traditional varietals in the country such as Cabernet Franc or Pinot Noir, searching for oceanic terroirs in a country of continental viticulture and white wines are beginning to be noticed, showing that Argentina it is not just a red wine producer country.

 

Offering a great diversity and an excellent quality, Argentine winemaking goes through one of the best moments in its history.
