Patagonia, the southernmost wine-producing region in Argentina, is located inland close to the Andes Mountains. Home to two key Argentina wine provinces, Rio Negro and Neuquén, this area sees different climate influences than its northerly neighbors who sit at a much high altitude. In Patagonia grape growing can provide its challenges due to desert winds, but the low rainfall and cooling influence from how it lies latitudinally, the vines actually benefit greatly and see a lesser risk for disease. The long days and cool nights give these wines a beautiful concentration with fresh fruit flavors and balanced acidity.
