Since its inception in 1999, Argento has established a reputation as a producer of very good and well-priced wines from Mendoza, which are distributed in England, parts of Europe, the US and Canada. Argento has essentially worked as a negociant, making and selling wine without having vineyards of its own. It has maintained long-term relationships with a small set of grape growers from the Uco Valley, the Central Region, and the Eastern Region of Mendoza.
The winemaker, Silvia Corti, works closely with the growers to maintain quality and appropriate yields, and the philosophy has been one of blending single varieties from different vineyards to create wines of complexity and interest.
