Home of the Tango, Argentina is a multi-faceted country with a culture rich in European sophistication and indigenous tradition. Nestled between the Andes Mountains and the Atlantic Ocean, Argentina’s poor soil, semi-arid climate, intense sunshine and high altitudes yield astonishing grapes for the cultivation of the noble vine. At these higher altitudes, the temperature swings between day and night permits intense ripening of the grapes as well as time for recovery to yield wine with intense flavor profiles.
Mendoza, where the bright sunshine and hot arid climate are ideal for the cultivation of the noble vine has earned accolades as a world-class wine region. Mendoza is recognized by wine lovers as Argentina’s premier wine-producing province with focus on quality not quantity. Several noble grape varieties are cultivated here including Malbec, Shiraz, Chardonnay, Torrontes, Cabernet Sauvignon, Bonarda, Merlot and Sauvignon Blanc
