Mendoza the Amazing
Mendoza is located in the far western expanse of Argentina at 3,152 feet above sea level. The soil is sandy, providing perfect drainage while the mountain rivers offer ample water. The region experiences four distinct seasons with no extremes in temperatures, providing an ideal grape growing environment.
Salta the Beautiful
600 miles north sits the growing region of Salta at 5600ft above sea level. It is one of the highest grape growing regions in the world. Intense sunlight and desert conditions combined with snow-melt water from the Andes mountains create an ‘over ripe’ aspect to the grapes, providing big, deep flavors that carry over into the wine.
