The Argentine wine industry is the fifth leading producer of wine in the world. There are many different varieties of grapes cultivated in Argentina. The French brought Auxerrois, which became known as Malbec, which makes most of Argentina's best known wines. The Italians brought vines that they called Bonarda, which may be related to Dolcetto. Torrontés is another typically Argentine grape and is mostly found in the provinces of La Rioja, San Juan, and Salta. For years Argentina wines were known for their quantity rather than quality and for consuming 90% of the wine it produced. However, its wine-making reputation has grown, thanks to the world-class bottlings made with Malbec and these other grapes.
