Argentina, lands of contrasts
You will be invited on a real journey across Argentina’s six main wine regions.
Direction South America!
After having celebrated the vineyards of Georgia and the Douro Valley, la Cité du Vin will be hosting Argentina from 12 August, for its next temporary exhibition featuring a Guest Wine Region.
You will be invited on a real journey across Argentina’s six main wine regions. Thanks to digital and immersive displays, the exhibition will offer a sensory and participative experience of Argentina’s nature in all its spectacular diversity.
At each stage of this adventure, icons from the six regions will relate the story of their wines, their gastronomy and their culture. You will be able to feel the differences in altitude, landscapes, climates, geographical conditions... The goal is to understand the multitude of combinations allowing Argentina to offer such a wide range of wines with their infinite variety of flavours. The legendary Malbec and Torrontès, another famous grape variety native to Argentina, will naturally take pride of place.
The exhibition is produced by Argentina’s Secretariat of Tourism and supported by the National Institute for the Promotion of Tourism (INPROTUR).
Various events will be held during the Argentina, lands of contrasts exhibition, to explore the themes it addresses in greater depth.
