Wines of Argentina – Wine Tasting and BBQ
Toronto, July 29th – The Consulate General of Argentina and Wines of Argentina invite you to:
An Argentine Wine Jam & BBQ!
Located in the Southern Cone of the American Continent, with a population of 42 million inhabitants and a territory that is four times larger than France, Argentina is one of the world’s nature reserves. Privileged with outstanding natural richness and extraordinarily diverse landscapes, Argentina boasts high mountains and plains, lush vegetation and extreme deserts, forests and steppes, glaciers and waterfalls.
This wealth of natural ecosystems includes vast grapegrowing regions stretching at the foot of the Andean strip, to the West of the country, from latitude 22° south to latitude 42° south. The cultivated area covers more than 538,071 acres. Argentina’s vineyards are at varying altitudes with some as high as 3000 meters.
It is in this context, and in the course of five centuries, that Argentina has developed such an extraordinary wine industry. The altitude, the wide range of temperatures, the local know-how, the new technologies and a deeply-rooted popular wine culture lend their wines their unique identity and quality.

“Think Argentina is all about malbec? Here’s your chance to discover the diversity of this vast country not only within the varied, new sub-regions that produce malbec but also the unique expression of both indigenous and international varieties. With some of the world’s most elevated vineyards and arid climates, it is no wonder that Argentina is home to some of the most unique and appealing wines in the world.
