Buenos Aires (province)

Buenos Aires Province is in Argentina. The city of Buenos Aires is surrounded by the province, but is politically autonomous.




The Province of Buenos Aires has only become a producer of premium wines during the first decade of the 21st century. Vineyards are located in the southern part of the province, especially around Médanos (40km from Bahia Blanca on Ruta Nacional 22). Wine-growing in this region was started in lands previously dedicated to garlic and pasture.

In Tres Arroyos, in the south of Buenos Aires province, there is a traditional celebration between the first day and seventh day of March: The Wheat Festival. In the festival, there are a lot of food stalls offering local traditional food: roast beef, roast veal, roast lamb. But wheat plays the most important role. There´s a wheat seeds competition. The best seed and the producer of that seed are awarded a prize. There´s also a folk music show, and on the last day of the festival a panel of judges chooses The Wheat Festival Queen.
