For wine people in the know, Argentina represents one of the most amazing places for wine quality and value today. The country is also one of the ‘kindest’ climates (dry, sunny) for growing quality grapes with very few disease issues and growing problems. The fact that many vineyards are found at elevations above 4,000 feet is quite remarkable. Malbec is the king here – with very fine Cabernet as well. If you require further supplier or product, please contact your local RWM office.
