A Land That Was Made For Wine 

Quality in wine does not arise simply from a grape or a place, but from a complex interaction of the two

Argentina is often bundled-up together with other “New World” wine producers, like Chile, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa. This perception may dilute the real quality of its raw materials and devalue the work and skill of its producers. Argentina may have several indisputable advantages over Chile and Australia, its principal competitors in the world market – a better climate, better soils, a better irrigation system, a wider range of premium grape varieties, and a broader variety of growing environments. The quality of the grapes, which is now widely recognized, has a fundamental effect in making good wines.

The valleys situated in and along the foothills of the Andes Mountains have ideal conditions for growing vines. Argentina’s vineyard regions are situated mainly in the country’s interior, where the Andes Mountains divide Argentina from Chile. These regions are scattered across the foothills of the Andes Mountains at elevations up to 4,900 feet above sea level, making these some of the highest altitude wine regions in the world. The higher altitude means more ultraviolet rays, which grapes respond with organic components that produce exceptional fruitiness. Small climate variations from year to year help to produce vintages of consistent quality.
