The cultivation of grapes by farmers in the area made wine its main product in the early twentieth century. That is why the vineyards displaced livestock and other crops from Caucete.
The best adaptation to the land with respect to the vine made grapes its main fruit, and for decades, the inhabitants of this place have paid tribute to the local and provincial wine activity, which is the National Grape and Wine Festival. The traditional celebration values and pays tribute to the fruits grown and harvested.
Its first edition was in 1980, after the vine workers made roasts at the end of their working day. Over the years, the organizers expanded the activities. However, due to economic problems, permanent implementation was prevented and eventually suspended for seven years. But thanks to the constant productive growth he managed to return the traditional festival again with a grid of activities on the part of the inhabitants of Caucete and the rest of the region.
In this way, the National Festival of Grapes and Wine became a traditional celebration of the Sanjuaninos who, every year prepares to celebrate the fruit of the work and effort of growing the vine, where locals through this meeting enjoy the wines of Caucete. It should be noted that this place is recognized nationally for its viticulture.
