Mendoza Province

About Mendoza Province

The Mendoza Wine Region is by far the most important in all of Argentina as it is responsible for approximately 80% of the country鈥檚 total wine production. The Malbec varietal is almost synonymous with Mendoza as it accounts for the majority of the region鈥檚 plantings, but Cabernet Sauvignon, Torront茅s and Chardonnay are also heavily produced. The combination of the desert-like conditions and high-altitude vineyards aid in producing wines with robust concentration with plenty of supporting acidity. The Malbecs from the region are known for producing wines with dense boysenberry, plum and blackberry flavors and often show layers of coffee and bitter chocolate due to oak aging. Be sure to look through our Mendoza Buying Guide to find the top cellar selections as well as the best buys from this region.
