Vision of the Argentinian wine industry:

Argentina´s main objective should be to promote its image as a country, which boosts the world wine commerce. I believe in a promising future, but only those who are able to plan and finance their projects will survive. With such long-term projects, businessmen should not only invest in vineyards and a winery building, but also in the product positioning in the market.-
