About Argentine Wine


  • Vineyard elevations range from 2,300 to as high as 9,000 feet.
  • Intense sunshine (solar radiation) with relatively cool air temperatures produces healthy vines, which allows for selective pruning and good yield management.
  • High polyphenol levels result in soft tannin structure and greater flavor intensity.


  • High desert with warm summer days and cool nights leads to even ripening and soft tannins without losing the acidity necessary to achieve balanced wines.
  • 8 inches of rain per year means growers can control vine stress and yields.
  • 300 days of sun + cool air temperatures means grapes achieve excellent physiological ripeness at the same time that sugars are still in balance.


  • Virtually pest-free vineyards due to low humidity and high altitudes.
  • Growing areas vary from sandy to clay, but are predominantly loamy with excellent drainage.
  • Most soils are low in organic materials due to elevation and climate, creating additional desirable vine stress.
