Mendoza (Wines and Andes)


Discovering the Best High Altitude Wines in the World



Discovering the Best High Altitude
Wines in the World

Early in the morning you will depart to Mendoza's agricultural oasis of Valle de Uco, 62 miles (100 kilometers) from Mendoza City. Inside the first mountainsides of the Andes' foothills, the Uco valley presents the highest altitudes at which wines are produced in the province of Mendoza.

The grapes produced in this area have reached international prestige and distinction. In the last years Moet Chandon, Catena, Kendal Jackson and Rostchild have planted vineyards in Valle de Uco in the search of the "Best high altitude wine of the world". The microclimates present in this area are suitable for cultivating varieties such as: Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Torrontes, Tempranillo,Merlot, Pinot Noir,Chardonnay and Semillon.

The wide temperature range, constant sunshine and excellent soil characteristics of Valle de Uco produce grapes that enable the production of wines with exceptional intensity in color, as well as an important aromatic expression and ideal structure. The weather conditions make these grapes have a thicker skin than in all other areas of Mendoza. This special attribute makes it possible for the Valle de Uco wineries to produce the finest wine in Mendoza.

You will visit these first-class wineries: Salentein winery, Andeluna winery, and Altus winery.

You will enjoy a guided wine tasting in each visited winery.
