.................................................

The Italians began arriving in Argentina from 1857 to 1940, initially from the northern regions and latterly from Italy's south.  The immigrants planted many of Argentina's vineyards in C19 as many of them came from winemaking regions.  They brought over vines from grape varieties from their regions as well as a lot of technology which transformed Argentina winemaking.

Today it is estimated that up to 25 million Argentines have some degree of Italian ancestory.

This Argentina v Italy tasting would make a great gift for the Italian & South American wine lover.
