Last time we featured Wine in Argentina we looked at San Juan & Wine, one of the biggest producers of wine in Argentina, next to Mendoza; now we will feature Neuquén, the wine region that creates some of the fruitiest and full flavoured wines in the country.
Neuquén is the centre point in Argentina’s great valley, a region known for its fertile soil, producing the majority of Argentina’s delicious apples, among other crops, and becoming more popular among tourists year after year. If you are studying Spanish in Buenos Aires, head down South to explore this great area of Argentina.
Located in the central region of Argentina, the province of Neuquén produces some of Argentina’s most exquisite wines, particularly the fruit and full bodied kind.
One of the progressive wine areas in the country in regards to technology and architecture, the wineries in Neuquén cover more than 1,000 hectares of land, each winery devoted to creating top quality wines to distribute to the wine lovers throughout Argentina and the world. There are a few areas in the province that are truly devoted to the growing of wine for their fertile soil, perfect temperature, and balanced exposure to both rain and sun. The grapes in Neuquén see mild temperatures throughout the year, sufficient rain falls, and receive almost constant sun exposure, leaving the grapes in prime condition.
The grapes here create some of Argentina’s most fruity and full bodied wines, including various forms of Malbec, Merlot, Chardonnay, and Sauvignon Blanc.
Check out these great wines from the Neuquén region:
Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Merlot, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Franc, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Semillón.
