Private Tours in Mendoza Wineries
Mendoza, World Wine Capital, is the main winemaking province of Argentina, producing more than 80% of domestic wine, and has more than 395,000 acres of vineyards. It is undoubtedly a center of reference for the wine industry in Argentina and South America.
There are three large oases in Mendoza: East, Center and Uco Valley.
The East of Mendoza is indeed a winemaking power, if one is to consider the extent of the vineyards and the number of wineries established in the area. This subregion comprises the departments of Rivadavia, San Martín, La Paz and Santa Rosa. All the grape varieties grown in Argentina are found in the East, but Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Chenin, Torrontés and Viognier stand out among the whites, and Sangiovese, Syrah, Bonarda and Tempranillo stand out among the reds.
This old, traditional winemaking region covers the departments of Luján de Cuyo and Maipú and is known as the “premium winemaking area (primera zona)” of Argentina. Such name is no coincidence: it reflects the prestige earned by its wines, historically ranking among the best in the country. Its most characteristic variety is Malbec, which yields the iconic wine of the region, the province and the country. Other red varieties found here include Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Pinot Noir and Syrah. Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc stand out among the whites.
The Uco Valley comprises the Tupungato, Tunuyán and San Carlos departments. It stands out for its ideal conditions for the production of top quality grapes, yielding both white and red wines with great aging capacity. The most traditional varieties here are the Malbec, Merlot and Pinot Noir of La Consulta district. White varieties grown in the area include Chardonnay and Semillon.
