ARGENTINA

In Argentina, wine production and consumption dates back from more than 400 years ago, when the first specimens of "vitis vinifera" were brought to America by the Spaniards, in the early 16th century. Catholic priests who came to America settled vineyards around their monasteries, so as to assure the wine to celebrate holly mass.

Favored by optimum soil and weather conditions, the "vitis vinifera" began an accelerated growth, especially in the regions nearby the Andes.

During the 19th century, the European immigrants brought new grape cultivation techniques and grape varieties, which found in the Andes and Colorado River region an ideal habitat to develop.

By the end of the 19th century, the Railway and the settling of European immigrants with vast experience in wine elaboration caused the biggest expansion of the wine as a national industry. Cabernet, Malbec, Bonarda, Torrontes and Chardonnay discovered ideal weather conditions and prospered successful and rapidly, originating the first Argentinean fine wines.
