A new feature this year is the art space "Arte&Vino", an exhibition of more than 25 oak wine barrels painted by artists from around the country: Ernesto Bertani, Enrique Burone Risso, Mauro Cano, Ricardo Celma, Claudio Gallina, Graciela Genoves, Sol Halabi, Juan Manuel Jaimes Roy, Antonio Sarelli Daniel Kaplan, Juan Lascano, María Linzoain, Milo Lockett, Mario Pérez, Silvana Robert, Mario Sanzano, Mario Vidal Lozano, Néstor Villar Errecart. Paintings related to the wine world, by Agustín Viñas, Ernesto Bertani, Juan Lascano, and the famous sculpture “Racimos” by Luis Falcini, (1922) complement the exhibit.
High end wines from the wineries participating in the fair can be tasted at the Wine Bar. Visitors will also be able to stroll through Paseo de las Olivas, a space dedicated to the progress that our country has made in the production of olive oil. Also present will be all wine schools, with different proposals to form increasingly informed consumers.
Cooking shows will be presented to show the preparation of dishes and advice the visitors about the best pairings between food and wine. Again this year, the Wine Store will be the space for those wishing to buy wine labels.
For the past years Argentina has been positioned in the international wine market among the five main wine producers worldwide, after France, Italy, Spain, and United States.
