A brief look at Argentina:

Located in the southern part of the American continent, with a population of 44 million and an area almost eight times larger than Germany, Argentina is one of the world's natural reserves. Privileged by the extraordinary diversity of its landscapes, Argentina offers high mountains and plains, lush vegetation and extreme deserts, forests and steppes, glaciers and waterfalls.
This wealth of natural ecosystems includes large, highly productive vineyard regions that stretch at the foot of the Andes from north to south, with a cultivated area of just over 200,000 hectares. This allows Argentina to be especially known in the world for its high-altitude wines.
Over five centuries Argentina has developed an exceptional wine industry. The altitude, climate and terroir, together with a deeply rooted popular wine culture, give Argentine wines a unique identity and quality. Today Argentina is the 5th largest wine producer in the world.

Why Argentine wines? 

- Wineries are constantly developing their own national and regional identity, focusing increasingly on expressing the terroir.
- Argentine wine production combines traditional forms with technology and current trends. This allows wine producers to permanently renew their offer, both within the domestic and foreign markets. 
- Winemakers challenge limits with new projects and new ways of making wine, both varietals and cuvees and blends.
- Thanks to the diversity of the soil and the vastness of the country, there is constant experimentation with new regions, leading to the creation of new geographical indications (GIs).

Argentinean wine regions:

Northwest (Jujuy, Salta, Tucumán and Catamarca)

(6,000 hectares of cultivated land)
The Northern region is characterised by the altitude of the vineyards, situated between 1,000 and 3,300 metres above sea level. Here are the highest vineyards in the world. Other peculiarities of the region are the low rainfall and the dry, warm climate, with very high average temperatures and sandy soils that favour good drainage.
These regions have thousands of years of history, as they were once home to the Calchaquies and Diaguitas, who were among the first peoples to inhabit the American continent.
The main valleys and wine growing areas of northwest Argentina are Cafayate, Molinos, Cachi, Yacochuya, San Carlos, Tolombón, Belén, Santa Maria, Humahuaca, among others. The most commonly grown red grapes in the Northwest are MalbecCabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Tannat, Bonarda and Merlot
This area is also known for excellent blends. The most commonly grown white grapes in the Northwest are Torrontés Riojano, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Chenin and Riesling.
Torrontés, grown especially in the Cafayate Valley, is Argentina's flagship white grape and is not found anywhere else in the world.

Cuyo (La Rioja, San Juan and Mendoza)

(188,050 hectares of cultivated land)
The region of Cuyo (Land of the Deserts) is one of the driest and yet most productive regions for viticulture. This is the largest wine producing region in Argentina and the most important in South America. With altitudes ranging from 430 to 2,000 metres, this region is characterised by its mountainous relief. The Andes are the main source of irrigation, providing its meltwater every summer.
Low rainfall, clean air and irrigation with meltwater make the difference for this region. The most typical and world-renowned variety is Malbec.

Wine from Mendoza: (*)

In the mid-west of the territory, at the foot of the Andes, Mendoza is home to 75% of Argentina's total vineyards and the largest number of wineries in the country. This makes it one of the most important production centres in the world.
The highest peaks of the Andes are in Mendoza. The presence of this giant mountain range acts as a barrier against the humid winds of the Pacific Ocean. 
The altitude, the continental climate, the heterogeneity of the soils and the thawing are key factors for the production of excellent wines, contributing to an important wine tradition. 
The area of Mendoza can be divided into five large sub-regions, which give the grape varieties their particular characteristics: Uco Valley (Valle de Uco), which includes the departments of Tunuyán, Tupungato and San Carlos; Primera Zona, which includes the departments of Luján de Cuyo and Maipú; Oasis del Norte (Lavalle and Las Heras), del Este (San Martín, Rivadavia, Junín, Santa Rosa and La Paz) and del Sur (San Rafael, Malargüe and General Alvear), covering practically the entire geography of the province. 
The most common red grapes in Mendoza are MalbecBonardaCabernet SauvignonSyrah, Tempranillo, MerlotPinot NoirCabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Tannat. Mendoza is also known for its blends.
The most common white grapes in Mendoza are Chardonnay, Torrontés Riojano, Chenin, Sauvignon Blanc, Semillón, Viognier, Torrontés Mendocino, Torrontés Sanjuanino, Riesling.

Wine from La Rioja: (*)

Amidst fertile oases and dry mountain ranges lies the cultivated area of the Famatina Valleys, in the west of the region, between the Sierras de Velasco and Famatina.
The valleys are characterised by a warm climate, mild nights and great aridity. The interaction of altitude, latitude and high solar radiation determines different temperatures and humidity conditions in a semi-arid environment.
There is a strong presence of Torrontés Riojano, a variety that is native to the area and belongs to the Creole grape family. In general, the white wines of the region have green tones and intense fruity aromas. The palate is of medium structure and the acidity is moderate to low.
The most common red grapes in La Rioja are MabecCabernet SauvignonBonardaSyrah and Merlot.
The most commonly grown white grapes in La Rioja are Torrontes Riojano, Chardonnay, Viognier, Chenin and Sauvignon Blanc.
Patagonia (La Pampa, Neuquén and Río Negro)
Patagonia is the southernmost region of Argentina where grapes are grown. It comprises the provinces of Río Negro, Neuquén and La Pampa and has 3,700 hectares of vineyards, plus a very few hectares in the province of Chubut. The main regions are San Patricio del Chañar (Neuquén) and the upper, middle and lower regions of the Río Negro Valley. The vineyards are located between 300 and 500 meters above sea level.
Winters are hard and summers are cool, especially at night, which allows winegrowers to obtain harmonious combinations of acidity and sweetness and abundant flavors, thanks to the slow and persistent ripening of the grapes. 
All these characteristics give the Patagonian wines refined flavours, a superior aromatic intensity that reflects the purity of the environment and increases the prestige of the southernmost wine region in the world.
The most commonly grown red grapes in Patagonia are Malbec, Merlot, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.
The most common white grapes grown in Patagonia are Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Torrontes Riojano, Torrontes Mendocino and Semillón.

Red Wines from Argentina: Basic knowledge

What are the typical Argentine foods to pair with Argentine 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.

Of course, in Argentina they 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 very cold.

What is the altitude of the vineyards in Argentina?

The altitude of the vineyards in Argentina, in the Northwest region (Salta, Catamarca and Jujuy), ranges from 750 to 3300 meters above sea level.
Vineyards in the Patagonian and Pampas regions can reach almost 700 meters above sea level.

The average altitude of the vineyards of Mendoza, San Juan and La Rioja (Cuyo region) range from 800 to 2000 meters above sea level.

How many Appellations of Origin (DOC) does Argentina have?

Argentina has two DOC ( Controlled Denomination of Origin), and both are in Mendoza. One is Luján de Cuyo and the other is San Rafael. However, Argentina has almost 100 GIs (Geographical Indications) distributed in all the provinces that produce wine, and in its main regions.

What is the development of Argentine wine production?

With 215 thousand hectares of vineyards planted, Argentina produces wine in 14 of the 23 provinces and is the 5th largest wine producer in the world.
Of the total exported in dollars in 2020, 23% corresponds to Malbec. A red developed in Argentina as an export product that later became a favorite of local consumers, too.

Of the total cultivated area, 59% are red vines, 18% are white vines and 23% are rosé vines.

Of the total wine produced in Argentina in 2020, 72% of the wine is produced in Mendoza.

Argentina has more than 950 wineries in activity.

Which is the most recognized Argentine red wine?

The most recognized Argentine red wine worldwide is Malbec wine. You can also find Bonarda, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Pinot Noir, Syrah, Merlot and Tempranillo.

What is the most recognized Argentine white wine?

The most recognized Argentine white wine is Torrontés wine. This is a unique grape variety, which emerged during the Jesuit period in the 16th century, a blend of the Muscat of Alexandria grape and a local Creole grape variety. The Torrontés wine variety with which the highest quality wines are made is Torrontés Riojano. There is also Argentine red wine Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Chenin, Semillon and Viognier.
