Argentina Wine Awards

BREAKING NEW GROUND

Over the last 20 years Argentina has become a world viticulture benchmark due to the thorough study of the diversity of its terroirs. A whole new generation of agricultural engineers, enologists and wine producers is taking the lead and breaking new ground when it comes to produce quality wines. The Argentina Wine Awards have established themselves as the most influential tasting competition in Latin America which honours the evolution of Argentine wine.

This year´s concept “Breaking New Ground” seeks to reflect the innovations the industry is experiencing. In tune with this topic, this edition will include important changes in the format, such as the incorporation of the criterion "Region" to classify the samples and the reorganisation of price categories. There will also be induction seminars on each region, prior to tasting, in order to improve understanding of the origin of each product.

In order to reflect the proliferation of Argentina’s wines throughout the world, the international panel of judges will focus alternately on three markets per year to assemble more representatives per country. In 2017 the selected countries are the United States, the United Kingdom and China.

As in the 2016 edition, Wines of Argentina will include all +95 points winners in their promotional activities abroad to demonstrate the high quality of the wines of Argentina.

The tastings of the contest will take place in Mendoza, from 4th to 8th September 2017.
