Located at the base of the Andes Mountain Range, this oasis possesses unmatched features. The high altitudes where these vineyards are cultivated allow the grapes to mature slowly. The wide range of temperatures coupled with the intense sunlight and pure water from the thawing of the Andes Mountains, rich in minerals suitable for the development of different varieties, combine to provide outstanding quality in these wines.
In recent years, the Valle de Uco (Uco Valley) has become the focus of major investments both from Argentina and France, U.S.A, Spain, Italy and Chile, who have built majestic and striking wineries that produce award-winning world-class premium wines.
Surprise yourself by visiting the wine region that has been compared to Napa Valley, by tasting high quality wines and dining in restaurants with avant-garde architecture and exquisite gourmet menus prepared by acclaimed chefs while contemplating the grapevines and snowy peaks of the Andes through large picture windows.
