Argentina’s new era of organic production: How Grupo Avinea is leading the way

By Tobias Webb

In this podcast Sustainable Wine’s Toby Webb is joined by Andrés Valero, leader of sustainability and CSR at Grupo Avinea, and Juan Pablo Murgia, chief winemaker at Bodega Argento.

They discuss what sustainability means to the business, what it looks like on the ground at Avinea’s vineyards, the importance of organic viticulture and how this concept is evolving within the organisation.

We’d like to thank Grupo Avinea for their generous support as a sponsor of the Future of Wine Americas 2021 Conference.
