Given the many options, it is often difficult to make the right choice. That's why our wine tasters have made a selection of wines from Argentina, Chile and Uruguay for you. The selection is based on various aspects such as: Combination of wines from different South American countries, combination of grape varieties, combination of terroirs or combination of different wines (white wines, red wines, rosé wines and sparkling wines). All our wine packages have a discount with a special price and they change during the different seasons of the year. 

What is so special about South American wine?

Wines from South America have been arousing enormous interest among wine consumers and connoisseurs around the world for decades. This is mainly due to the typicality of the soils and the production techniques, which allow the different varieties of white and red wine to be produced in a special and unique way. We can appreciate this in wines from Argentinawines from Chile and wines from Uruguay. 
The geography of these countries is very diverse, and is influenced not only by the spectacular Andes mountain range, at whose foot the largest number of vineyards in Argentina and Chile are located, but also by the sea breezes and the influence of the Atlantic Ocean, which characterizes Uruguayan vineyards so much. 

Red wine from Argentina: 

Among the varieties that stand out most among the wines made in Argentina, we can find, without a doubt, Malbec at the top of the podium, followed by Cabernet SauvignonBonardaTannatMerlotSyrah and Pinot Noir

White wine from Argentina: 

Among the Argentine white wines we find a unique grape in the world: Torrontés, followed by Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Semillón, among others. 

Red wine from Uruguay: 

As regards Uruguayan wines, the Tannat grape stands out mainly, since this country is the main producer of wines based on this grape. Also Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Marselán, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Pinot Noir. 

White wine from Uruguay: 

Among the white wines of this country we can distinguish mainly Viognier, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Moscatel. 

Red wine from Chile: 

Regarding Chilean wines, the Cabernet Sauvignon stands out, which in this trans-Andean country is given in a very special way, followed by Carmenere, Cinsault, Merlot, Pinot Noir and Syrah. 

White wine from Chile: 

Among the white wines of Chile we find excellent Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Riesling, among others. 

Designation of origin and geographical indication: 

In all these countries there are regulations that, particularly in each one, have allowed over the years the creation of geographical indications and denominations of origin. Always respecting local regulations regarding the combination of vines and terroirs, the inventiveness of winegrowers in the production of Blends and Cuvees, both red and white, and of sparkling and rosé wines, stands out. 
In Andenweine you can also find internationally awarded wines from Argentina, Uruguay and Chile. 
From Andenweine we offer advice according to your personal taste, and we also provide you, through our articles in the section "Wine Guru", with interesting information about how to taste a wine, high altitude wines, Argentine wine regions, Uruguayan wine varieties and wine reviews.

Wines from South America: Basic knowledge  

Podium in world wine production:

According to data offered by the International Organisation of Vine and Wine at the end of 2021, Argentina has become the 6th wine producer (after Italy, Spain, France, USA and Australia), while Chile has moved to occupy the number 8 position in wine production at international level, as South Africa currently occupies the 7th position. Uruguay, although with growing numbers, does not reach the first 10 places in the ranking.

At what temperature should wines be served?

In order to enjoy it to the fullest, we recommend you drinking it at the right temperature:
✓ For white or rosé wines, we recommend a serving temperature from 8° to 12°C.
✓ For young or light red wines, from 12° to 15°C.
✓ For red wines with a long period of time in oak barrels, the serving temperature can vary between 14° and 18°C.
✓ For sparkling wine we recommend serving it between 7° and 9° C.

What is the advantage of drinking wines at the right temperature?

The serving temperature is important in order to maintain the balance between alcohol, freshness and structure of the wine in the mouth. It is also essential to preserve the aromatic complexity, in order to avoid some flavours being diminished by low temperature. Also a higher serving temperature increases the feeling of intense alcohol.
Remember that you should not always wait for a good moment to drink a wine. It is often the WINE that improves the moment.

What are the typical South American food pairings for Argentine, Chilean and Uruguayan wines?

Argentina is known worldwide for its beef production, so generally a Malbec from Argentina pairs wonderfully with a good grilled steak, or with the typical "asado", which is the traditional barbecue of this country.
In any case, more and more people are choosing not to eat meat in this country. Considering the great influence of Spanish and Italian food in Argentina, it is also very common to accompany red wines with pasta. More concentrated tomato sauces (such as tuco) go very well with a good Cabernet Sauvignon from Salta.
In Patagonia, it is traditional to pair fish and seafood dishes with delicious Patagonian Pinot Noir, as well as with Chardonnay. In that region and in Mendoza, there are delicious Chardonnay wines that have been aged for some time in oak barrels, so they are wines with more body and structure.
The custom of eating meat is not only Argentinean. Uruguay also eats excellent meat, which pairs very well with Uruguayan Tannat red wine, preferably those that have been aged in oak barrels.
Another Uruguayan dish par excellence is its famous "chivito", a sandwich of beef and other ingredients, usually dressed with mayonnaise and accompanied by french fries.
A typical Chilean dish is cazuela, a soup prepared with beef, chicken or lamb, which is accompanied with vegetables such as potatoes, pumpkin and corn on the cob. This is a dish that can be very well accompanied by a Carmenere red wine, either a young wine or a wine aged in barrels.
Other typical dishes such as pastel de choclo or curanto, go very well with Cabernet Sauvignon or Syrah.
Of course, in Argentina, Chile or Uruguay, people eat delicious empanadas, which can be made of meat, chicken, fish or vegetables. In the summer, a typical fried empanada can pair very well with a Torrontés wine from Salta, served chilled.
