Argentina

Argentina

Argentina's wine growing history dates back to the 16thcentury having been established by Spanish settlers. In the modern era it has gained huge acclaim for its Malbecs, which despite the protestations from producers in Cahors,it can claim some of the world’s best examples of this variety. Its centre of gravity for the production of wine is the state of Mendoza, which has diverse climates and geologies, allowing for a wide array of grape varieties to be planted.

You will hear Argentinian winemakers speak a great deal about high altitude vineyards. These elevated sites allow for the slow and even ripening of the grapes, whilst still having sufficient light and heat to produce wines with great body and mid-palate weight.
