About Argentina and Their Wine
Argentina is the fifth largest producer of wine in the world and produces about four times as much wine as Chile. Spanish colonization in 1541 brought over Vitis Vinifera vines and the first record of a vineyard dates back to 1557 in Santiago del Estero. Vines came from different sources, including Italy.
The country is known for Malbec, Bonarda, Tempranillo, Barbera, Lambrusco, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Syrah and others. The most widely planted white varietals are Pedro Xeminez, Moscatel, Torrontes, Chenin Blanc, Semillon, Riesling, Chardonnay and others.

BC Hospitality Foundation’s Tip Out To Help
The foundation, formed in fall 2006, was inspired by the desire to help long-time wine agent Michael Willingham with the money he needed for both a costly surgery and the rehabilitation time that would follow.
This desire to help Michael brought forward a need to establish a trust fund that could be used to help anyone within the food service, beverage, and hospitality industry who required extraordinary support due to illness or accident.
