National Grape Harvest Festival, Argentina

National Grape Harvest Festival

Although its origins are religious in nature, stretching back to the 17th century, the National Grape Harvest Festival (Fiesta Nacional de la Vendimia) officially started in 1936 when engineer Frank Romero Day, the then Minister of Industry and Public Works in Mendoza, signed a decree that the grape harvest would become a social event as part of the national agenda.

Nowadays, it’s Argentina’s biggest wine party, bringing together everyone from the field workers to the wine vineyard owners and the rest of the wine-loving world. Well, 40 percent of the rest of the world actually comes; the rest are domestic visitors. The Mendoza province in the Cuyo region of Argentina is responsible for 70 percent of the country’s wine production, most notably for its Malbec, along with Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay varietals. Grapes are so stained in the culture that Mendoza is part of the worldwide network of nine Great Capitals of Wine.
