Winemaking in Argentina goes back to the 16th century, when the first vines were planted. In the 1990s, Argentine's vineyards underwent a rapid and impressive restructuring, to become the largest wine producing country in Latin America. Indigenous grape varieties declined in favour of quality grapes and high-output vineyards were replanted at higher altitude. The country has attracted many foreign investors, motivated by the potential of the country and low production costs. Most vineyards are located in the highlands of the eastern foothills of the Andes on area nearly 2,400km long, from Salta in the north to more temperate regions of Patagonia. As a result, exports surged and Argentine wines are now renowned the world over along with its most emblematic grape, the Malbec. In 2010, the Argentine government made wine its national liquor: "Vino Argentino Bebida Nacional".
