Patagonia Wine

Patagonia is a region in the southernmost, lowest and coolest part of Argentina. It is literally at the end of the earth, its glaciers at Tierra del Fuego aiming the way to the South Pole.

Because of its significantly cooler growing conditions, cool-climate, international varietals do very well here such as Gewürztraminer, Riesling, Semillon and Pinot Noir. Other grapes grown are Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah and Chardonnay.
It is divided into two main regions:
The Rio Negro: began its viticultural history at the time of the railroad, which was built and owned by the British. The Brits found places to plant apple and pear orchards for fruit to be shipped back to England, and no doubt missing the wines they were used to drinking from Europe, decided to plant vineyards Read more »

  • The New York Times Travel section named Patagonia's wine-producing provinces one of the places to visit in 2010- I completely concur, so get out to visit those friendly, beautiful wineries in Rio Negro and Neuquén before the word gets out.
