Vision of the Argentinian wine industry:

Argentina as a wine producing country has had a constant growth of its exports during the past few years and I have no doubts that will remain with the same growth rates in the next years. However, it is also clear that these statistics are the result of a continued and sustained increase in the quality of its wines. Today this is recognized by great critics and specialists of the world, which makes Argentina to be considered a producer of great wines.
