México was the first country in America where the vine bore its fruit. Later on, Mexican vines were taken to the United States and to Peru.

Vines were introduced in Argentina back in the XVI century. One of the most widespread versions states that few years after the foundation of Mendoza, wine production had progressed remarkably and this was ascribed to Pedro del Castillo – the first founder of Mendoza- who is thought to have introduced the vine from Chile.

Today, Mendoza is the province with the highest wine production of the country, with an ever-growing presence in the international market.
