Mendoza is a winegrowing region with a combination that is unique in the world in terms of altitude, desert climate, low humidity and natural meltwater irrigation. The Mendoza province is the biggest and most important wine region in Argentina, producing more than 80% of the country’s premium wines. It is located at the foot of the Andes mountain range, on Argentina’s western border, between latitudes 32º and 37º south.

This region’s desert climate is unique, with low rainfall and 300 sunny days per year. Meltwater flows from the Andes to the vineyards as natural irrigation. The low pest prevalence, as well as the low unwanted humidity, rot and fungi mean that the need to use pesticides or fungicides is almost unnecessary. The altitude at which the Malbec grapes and other varieties grow, together with the intensity of the sunlight provide the grapes with intense flavours and deep colours. The resulting wines are fresh, with floral aromas (more precisely, violet notes in the case of Malbec) and a great complexity due to the maturity of their tannins.
