1853

 1853 Malbec was introduced to Argentina. Argentine President Domingo Faustino Sarmiento made explicit his mission to transform the country’s wine industry. On April 17, 1853 he entrusted Michel Pouget, a French soil expert, with the task of bringing in new varietals. Pouget continued experimenting with the adaptation of the French varietals to the diverse terroirs of Argentina. In 1863 France went through a deep crisis: a plague of Phylloxera affected the whole region of the Rhône losing large quantity of Malbec vineyards. Meanwhile, Malbec flourished in Argentina creating wines that were superior to those in their country of origin. Decades later, in 1956, France faced another obstacle: a frost exterminated most of Malbec’s vineyards; In 1956, after these crises in France, Argentina became the only country in the world producing Malbec wine from France.
