Patagonia

Patagonia is Argentina’s most southern and remote viticutural area. It is divided into three sub-areas – Rio Negro Valley, Rio Colorado Valley and San Patricio del Chañar. The Rio Negro Valley is the furthest south which also has the lowest altitude (200 metres). Despite this lower altitude, Patagonia is much cooler than the higher-yielding areas to the north due to its southerly location. Traditionally, the Río Negro has been the region of Argentina that produces much of its fruit, most particularly apples. However, the combination of its cooler climate, chalky soil and long, warm ripening season create ideal conditions for high-quality wine production such as Torrontés Riojano and Semillon and even Pinot Noir in the Rio Negro Valley, where some of the vines date back to almost 100 years. Some of the top domaines in this area include: the renowned Bodega Weinert, Noemia (owned by Countess Noemi Marone Cinzano of Argiano of Montalcino fame) as well as Bodegas Chacra, which is the creation of Piero Incisa della Rocchetta, whose family owns Tenuta San Guido in Bolgheri, Italy. ...
