Argentina ranks fifth in world wine production. The history of Argentine wine has its roots in Spain, with Spanish colonists bringing the first vine cuttings to the country in 1557. The Mendoza province is the most prominent wine growing region, producing more than 60% of the nation’s wine and an even higher percentage of the total exports.
Due to the high altitude and low humidity of these regions, these vineyards rarely face the insect, fungi, mold, and grape disease problems that vineyards in other parts of the world do. Organic wines are produced more easily as a result.
Malbec is by far the most well-known grape variety cultivated in Argentina. These wines are well-known for being rich, dark, spicy and opulent, with vivacious fruit-driven flavors and smoky undertones. They are often some of the greatest values available to the global wine consumer. Other prominent varieties include the omnipresent Cabernet Sauvignon and the crisp, high-acid white variety Torrontes. MadWine works to provide you with extraordinary examples from this world-class, up-and-coming wine region.
