Mendoza

Mendoza accounts for two-thirds of Argentina’s wine production. The soil in this region is alluvial with a rocky subsoil, containing sediments of sand, silt and clay. The organic matter within the soil restrains the grapevine’s growth, resulting in excellent quality grapes ideal for winemaking. Many wines from the region are of an intensely fruity nature with notes such as ripe plums and blackberries. In addition, spices such as black pepper are often evident as well as a certain minerality. On the palate, they are revealed to be opulent wines, with soft and sweet tannins.

San Juan

The region of San Juan is the second grape and wine producing region in the country, with over 47000 planted hectares. The region’s climatic conditions have a high impact on the wine’s differentiating quality; the weather is warm and very dry. This characteristic is explained by the unique sun exposure of an average of 330 days a year, the low level of precipitations and weather phenomena. The soils in San Juan are varied although mainly aluvional. They hold certain singularities such as sandy extensions towards the East of Tulum Valley and a spreading of calcareous soils in Zonda with a lot of potentials.

Salta

Salta’s most outstanding wine region is Cafayate. Cafayate possesses a special climate, suitable for the plantation of grapevines. Its vineyards have sunlight exposure during almost every day of the year. Located over 1700 meters above sea level, this region has sandy-loam soils made from thick grains with gravel and fine sands on the surface. These characteristics are similar to the layers of subsoil but with fractions of finer sand located deeper and with the presence of round stones. It has mild, amenable weather with pronounced thermal amplitude. The latter causes plants to relax during the night and continue synthesizing colour mater, aromas and flavours. This makes up for wines of excellent colour, intense aromas and lively flavours with mature tannins. Both white and red varieties stand out for their fruitiness, as well as for their varietal authenticity.

Patagonia

San Patricio del Chañar has been prized for viticulture in recent times. The region receives 180mm rainfall annually temperature differences of up to 20° C can occur between day and night during the ripening period. This makes for an ideal vine growing climate. Vineyards stand at around 400 metres above sea level. All these features combine to ensure extremely healthy grapes with great concentration of colours and aromas, slowly developing tannins and perfect levels of acidity. These factors help to yield high-quality wines.

Other regions

This comprises some of our beer and spirits that are from different regions of Argentina. The Buenos Ayres beer is an Argentinian beer but is brewed in Germany.
