 Semi-Finalists: Submit Your Recipe
Argentina offers a wealth of terroir through landscapes that cannot be replicated anywhere in the world: plains meet the highest mountains, lush vegetation meets absolute aridity, steppes meet forests, and southern glaciers give way to spectacular waterfalls. 
Leveraging this terroir-richness, a new generation of winemakers is breaking new ground and reshaping the Argentine wine landscape by mixing tried-and-true traditions with cutting edge technology and modern techniques. They’re leading new research and development projects to advance winemaking and utilizing indigenous grape varieties that can't be found anywhere else in the world, like Bonarda and Torrontés.
StarChefs is proud to partner with Wines Of Argentina to offer chefs the opportunity to explore this beautiful region and its exceptional wines.
