Argentine vineyards are situated in the foothills of the Andes and there is a continental climate with big temperature fluctuations between day and night. As a result, Argentina has a rich variety of varieties, different from Chile. The wine stars of Argentine wines are mainly made from the Spanish white varieties (Torrontés, Albariño etc) and French and Italian black varieties (Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese, Bonarda, Nebbiolo, etc.). Malbec (Côt) has become the most planted grape variety of the country. Every year on 17 April the celebration of the Malbec World Day is held around the world.
<p>Mendoza is the main wine region of Argentina, high-located at the foothills of the Andes. The two thirds of all Argentine wines are produced here. Uco Valley (in Spanish Valle de Uco) is the highest and closest to the Andes sub-region of Mendoza. The Luján de Cuyo Valley, where the premium Argentine wines are produced, has become a very popular wine destination in recent years. The fine white wines are produced in the cooler places where their grapes can be ripen slowly. Fleshy fruit red wines are made in warmer areas.</p>
<p>After Mendoza, Cafayate is the second most famous wine region in Argentina. It’s located in the northwest of the country, in the Calchaqui Valley. In the recent years, Cafayate enjoys a good reputation thanks to its high quality wines made primarily from Torrontés and Malbec grape varieties.</p>
