Bodegas de Argentina


Bodegas de Argentina is a business chamber that brings together most of the main wineries throughout the country and small and medium-sized wineries, which make up 70% of the entity’s partners. It was created in 2001 as a result of the merger of the Centro de Bodegueros de Mendoza, based in Mendoza, founded in 1935, and the Argentine Vitivinícola Association, based in Buenos Aires, founded in 1904.

The objective of the merger was to lay the foundations of an entity that would grow and have the greatest national representation as a wine business chamber. This was fully fulfilled in time since the founding wineries of Bodegas de Argentina were only 62. Today the partners of Bodegas de Argentina are more than two hundred and fifty (250) companies from all the wine-growing areas of the country. There are partners in the Provinces of Salta, Catamarca, La Rioja, San Juan, Mendoza, Neuquén, Río Negro, Córdoba and Buenos Aires. The Regional Vice Presidents appointed in each of these regions, who are part of the Board of Directors of Bodegas de Argentina, are the institutional link with them.

The companies associated with Bodegas de Argentina were pioneers in the technological change that started in the 1990s and continues today. They were protagonists of the qualitative changes that characterize today’s wines, and also, those who initially worked in the opening of international markets and in the development of wine tourism.

Our partners participate with their sales in the domestic market with 60% of what is consumed in cardboard packages (tetra brik) and 85% of the wine sold in bottles. In the foreign market they represent 90% of the export of fractionated wines.

The partners are both traditional wine companies and the new generation of small family businesses. Among them there are wineries that belong to founding families in our sector, as well as foreign investments, there are also large multinationals and wine SMEs, public limited companies and cooperatives. In short, it is a clear example of today’s viticulture.
