Mendoza

Mendoza Province is the heartland of the production of fine wine in Argentina. All but a handful of the major wineries are there. The city of Mendoza was founded in 1561. It now has a population of over 600,000, with wide pedestrian streets. Production is split almost equally between red and white wines. The Uco Valley includes the highest vineyards in the region, at Tupungato. The wines here tend to be high in natural acidity and that gives them an aging potential that is lacking in many other wines from Argentina. The traditionally successful vines here have been the Malbec and the Semillon, but new plantings also include Chardonnay, Carbenet Sauvignon, Merlot and Pinot Noir.
