Last time we featured Wine in Argentina we looked at Neuquén & Wine, one of the wine regions to produce some of Argentina’s fruitiest and full flavoured wines, now we will head up North to the province of Salta, where a singular but very productive wine region is located.
Salta is one of the most unique provinces in the country of Argentina, attractive to all types of traveler’s, especially lovers of nature. For those students studying Spanish in Buenos Aires, a trip to Salta can offer an incredible and unique addition to the culture experience of Argentina.
Salta is one of Argentina’s most Northern provinces and is famous for its wide range of diverse landscapes, climates, and altitudes, and just one unique area that is optimal for vineyards. This region is located in the Calchaqui’s Valleys, a large valley that runs straight through three of the country’s provinces, characterized by desert terrain, subtropical forests, and colourful mountain sides.
There are approximately 2,000 hectares of vineyards in Salta, producing high quality wines that are distributed in both Argentina and around the world. The wines of Salta are offered in a wide range of flavours and aroma, specializing in strong bodied wines such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, and Chardonnay.
Check out these great wines from the Salta region:
Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot, and Syrah.
