OVERVIEW

Argentina is the largest wine producer in South America, best known for its versions of classic red wines including Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah.

Argentine wines are considered New World wines, but actually have a rich history dating back more than 400 years. Winemaking practices were spread throughout Argentina – much as they would be later, in California – by Spanish missionaries planting vines to ensure a supply of sacramental wines. Though the growing conditions around the Andes Mountains are high and dry, these settlers used and improved upon the natives' agricultural practice, which channeled melting snow and ice from the Andean peaks to irrigate the vineyards.
