Vision of the Argentinian wine industry:

Argentina has today big advantages. If those advantages were used, promoted and showed, added to high-quality standards, we could be one of the most important wine producer countries. Argentina relies on an unlimited quantity of irrigation water of good quality, which is the great resource for the Argentinian Malbec that today is recognized as the best of the world. This red grape, originated in France, has found in our lands the best place for its development. The temperature, the altitude, the rain, the sun, the air and the land, are perfectly combined in order to make Argentinian Malbec a unique product. Today, I’m pleasantly surprised by the quality of Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Pinot Noir, growing in Uco Valleys’ lands.
