About Argovino

The wines of Argentina offer exceptional value and a huge variety of flavor. Argovino helps you to discover the finest Argentine wines in every price range with unbiased reviews and articles about the industry. We have more than 500 wines on the site and are adding wines every month. Have a look around and consider subscribing to our free monthly newsletter, which brings you a summary of all our reviews! Soon you’ll be seeing our Argovino ratings at your local wine shop, too. We’re a completely independent source of wine information – we just want to connect you to the best that Argentina’s wondrous vineyards have to offer.

Argovino only sources wines from retail outlets and distributors in the United States, so that our reviews reflect the same bottles you can buy. There’s no point writing about wines tasted at a winery 5,000 miles away; if those same qualities don’t make it onto stores’ shelves, then they’re of no benefit to you. Argovino doesn’t play favorites, either, because its reviews will only be valuable if you find them consistently useful and unbiased. You can read more about our tasting philosophy by clicking here.

Dan Altman created Argovino because the American wine market lacked a reliable reference focused on the wines of Argentina. Dan first visited Argentina in 1997 and later lived there for several years. In that time, he sampled a huge variety of wines, visited wineries in four provinces, and even dabbled in the winemaking industry. His travels have also taken him to wineries in France, Spain, Germany, Australia, South Africa, the United States, and Canada.

Thanks for visiting, and happy drinking!
