This chapter takes a look at the Argentinian wine industry. It first examines the growth of the industry after 1885 and its organization at the turn of the century. The chapter then examines the response of different groups to the major slump in 1901–3 and shows that although attempts to self-regulate the industry were generally successful, wine quality remained poor because consumer choice was determined by price. Finally, the chapter considers the response of different sectors to the collapse in wine prices after 1913 and shows the difficulties leading producers faced in passing the costs of adjustment on to growers and restricting supply.

Keywords:   Argentina, Argentinian wine industry, self-regulation, wine quality, product quality, wine prices
