Argentina history in winemaking dates back to the 1600s, but it really wasn't until the 1990s that this country became known for its wines. Let's fill in the gaps of the story, and learn how Argentina became one of the world's top wine producers.
It's useful to tie Argentina's history to its wines because it shows how major events either helped or hindered the spread of Argentinian wine to the world. What's remarkable is how the country transformed itself in less than 30 years to become a top producer.
