Argentina is the largest wine producing country in South America, ranking 4th in the world. Best known Mendoza region is not far from San Diego, Chile, right at the foot hill of Andes, enjoying a perfect cool climate. Most of the viticulture and wine making tradition are derived from Spanish and Italian immigrants. French varietal, Malbec, becomes the most important grape in Argentina. Malbec wine is now the icon wine of Argentina, with such a fruity, flavorful and fresh taste. Among other white varietals, Chardonnay and Torrontes are also remarkably enjoyable.
