Argentina

Wine argentina ArgentinaArgentine wine has its roots in Spain. During the Spanish colonization of the Americas, vine cuttings were brought to Santiago del Estero in 1557, and the cultivation of the grape and wine production stretched first to neighbouring regions, and then to other parts of the country. Although Argentina consumes 90% of the wine it produces, exports have started to grow since the 1990s and Argentina is currently the largest wine exporter in South America. The past years have seen the birth of numerous tourist-friendly wineries with free tours and tastings. The Mendoza Province is now one of Argentina's top tourist destinations.
