Mendoza has an incredibly diverse. Its wines range between world-famous, award-winning malbecs, and simple vino patero (foot-pressed wine). The differing terrains produce many varieties of grape. The eastern area of Maipú – home to big-name wineries such as Trapiche,Zuccardi and López – reaches 700 metres above sea level, while Uco Valley, a more southerly region in the shadow of the the Andes is 1,100 metres high. The distinctive microclimates are behind the magic of Mendoza’s extensive and exciting portfolio.
Malbec is the king of wines in Mendoza and has made its home in Luján de Cuyo and sub-districts such as Chacras de Coria, Vistalba and Agrelo. Bordeaux reds such as cabernet sauvignon, merlot and cabernet franc also fare well, while native grape torrontés riojano, chardonnay, sauvignon blanc and viognier are the well-known white wines.
