Argentine Wine Collection
Argentina is a prominent wine-producing country and ranks fifth in global wine production. The roots of Argentine wine can be traced back to Spain's colonization of the Americas, where vine cuttings were brought to Santiago del Estero in 1557.
Historically, Argentine winemakers were more interested in quantity than quality, and 90% of the wine produced was consumed domestically. However, the country has made significant strides in advancing the quality of its wines, and as a result, Argentina is now the largest wine exporter in South America.
The wine regions of Mendoza, San Juan, and La Rioja are the most important and produce over 60% of Argentine wine and exports. Due to the high altitude and low humidity of the main wine-producing regions, Argentine vineyards rarely face the problems of insects, fungi, molds, and other grape diseases that affect vineyards in other countries. This makes it easy to produce organic wines that are popular among wine enthusiasts.
