Wine has been made in Argentina since the 16th century, when Spanish missionary monks first planted vines in Mendoza. For hundreds of years, the world knew nothing of the delights of Argentinian wines, as the country remained isolated from the international community. However, in the last two decades Argentina’s economic situation has changed. Today, Argentina is among the five leading producers of wine and Argentinian brands have won awards at many famous tasting competitions.

A large number of European grape varieties are grown in Argentina. These include famous French varieties such as the Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah, Italian grapes such as Sangiovese and Bonarda, and the German Riesling. Just like every prominent wine producing nation, Argentina has its own hallmark — the Malbec, which enjoys an ideal climate and provides excellent yields.

Almost all of the wines exported and 75% of all Argentinian wines are produced in Mendoza; a region located in the foothills of the Andes. Other well-known wine regions of Argentina include - San Juan, Rio Negro, Salta, and La Rioja.

While the majority of Chilean wines are made of French grapes, Spanish and Italian varieties are widely used in Argentina. Therefore, Argentinian wine generally has a complex, refined taste, and has a great ageing potential. In addition, many new world wines are known for their great quality at a comparatively low price — Argentinian wine being no exception. Good quality local wines are available at affordable prices.

In the last century Argentinian wine has gained enormous popularity worldwide. International experts and critics as well as ordinary wine lovers recognise the high quality of Argentinian wines. The country produces wonderful red and white wines in equal volumes. Argentina is a country with a hot dry climate. Nevertheless, these natural conditions are well suited to winemaking. Vineyards grow in the foothills of the Andes and in deep valleys, protected from the wind, and are exposed to bright sunshine and cool nights. These are the ideal conditions for ripening grapes. Argentine wine has a rich bouquet, a strong aroma and a deep color. Argentina is proud of the Malbec grape variety, which local winemakers nurture to perfection. When purchasing Argentine wine pay attention to the blend, as you will often find a Malbec variety.

Argentinian wines have a relatively simple classification (as opposed to more complicated French classifications). Often, the label simply states the grape variety, year of the harvest and the name of the manufacturer. If you see the label «comun-vino de mesa», this indicates a simple everyday table wine. «Vino fino» - indicates a wine of higher quality and more complex flavours. Argentine wines of superior quality are categorised as «reserva». However, the state does not regulate the process of labeling wines, and so categorising wine is largely at the discretion of the manufacturer.
