Just before Christmas in 2021, I received an invitation to go for a tasting at the Argentinian Embassy. I was excited to go and learn more about a region that I had been researching.
Argentina produces notable wines like Malbec, Syrah, Tempranillo, and Cabernet Sauvignon. It is the 5th largest producer in the world but to me, it does not get enough airplay.
The history of wine in Argentina is interesting. Before the 1990’s, the country was more focused on producing high quantities of wine. They produced more wines than any nation outside Europe. However, they did not start exporting wine until the 1990s. Since then, they have become popular around the world.
In Kenya, I was amazed to see what a great portfolio of Argentinian wine we have on the shelves.
