Vision of the Argentinian wine industry:

Argentinian wines, mainly Malbec, are going through a unique moment in history. It can be said that they are in fashion in the United States and I would say that this is not just a transitory fashion. Malbec is a wine with a lot of good qualities and different styles  that allow it to be consumed at any time, paired with a wide variety of dishes. I think we have to take advantage of this fashion to demonstrate that we can also produce other wine varieties and finally insert Argentinian wines into the foreign market. In my opinion, we should not disregard the price-quality ratio. All in all, I think the Argentinian viticulture will keep on growing in the coming years.
