Tips & Tricks - Wine tour Argentina
What are the best wine routes and wine regions to visit on your wine trip to Argentina?
Argentina is one of the largest wine producing countries in the world with beautiful wine regions spread over the northern half of its territory. The southern half has an unfavourable climate for grape cultivation and wine making.
Wine was introduced in Argentina in the mid-sixteenth century with the Spanish. Thanks to its different climates, Argentina has been able to build up a large wine range and in recent years has become one of the top wine countries in wine export. The main grapes in Argentina are the Malbec originally from France, the Bonarda, the Cabernet Sauvignon, the Merlot, and furthermore the Syrah, Tempranillo and the Pinot Noir with the red grapes. Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Gris are the main grape varieties for the white grapes.
When is the best time to visit Argentina’s wine regions?
Argentina is one of the larger countries in South America. Because of its vast design, Argentina has different climates from very dry and warm in the north to almost polar climate in the southernmost tip near Ushuaia, the southernmost city in the world.
When it is best to go to Argentina depends of course on the activity that you would like to do. For example, if you want to play golf or do other outdoor activities, the Argentine spring (October and November) or autumn (March and April) is best to visit Mendoza and the Buenos Aires area while in the far north (Salta and surroundings) June until September are the best months. Then the weather is a bit cooler there. If you want to combine a wine tour through Argentina with Patagonia, August and September are probably best so that you can visit the southernmost tip, Ushuaia, in August.

Wine regions Argentina
In the north-western part of Argentina from the border with Bolivia to the city of Catamarca, you will find one of the largest wine regions of Argentina. The most famous wine region is located around the city of Salta and in particular around Cafayate. Vineyards grow at high altitudes, sometimes up to 3000 meters, including in the valleys around the Calchaquí Mountains. The dry climate with long summers and many hours of sunshine is best suited for grape varieties such as the Bonarda, the Cabernet Sauvignon, the Chardonnay, the Malbec, and the Syrah. During your visit to some of the most authentic wineries in the region, you will be able to taste the delicious wines that this region produces.
On the way to this beautiful wine region and back to Buenos Aires or on the way to the southern wine regions, the region also has a lot of natural beauty and beautiful cities that you can visit during excursions. This is also the region where you can taste some of the most traditional dishes of Argentine cuisine such as Empanadas, Humitas, Locro and Tamales. In short, during your wine tour to Argentina you cannot miss this wine region.
Adjacent and just south of the previous wine region is the wine region of Cuyo and Mendoza. Mendoza and its surrounding area is the largest wine region in Argentina. The beating wine heart if we can call it like that. This wine region has a somewhat milder climate than the more northerly located Salta and makes good use of the melting waters of the nearby Andes mountains. Like the northern wine region, the main grape varieties here are the Bonarda, the Cabernet Sauvignon, the Chardonnay, the Malbec, and the Syrah.
One of the most beautiful areas to combine wine and beautiful nature is the Uco Valley where the Andes are beautifully settled in the background of the various vineyards as you drive south.
Argentina’s third, more unknown wine region, is the wine region to the south and west of the capital, Buenos Aires. This emerging wine region produces some good white wines. The most characteristic of this wine region is the much milder climate that is often influenced by the Atlantic Ocean.
After a few days of delicious wine tasting through Argentina, you can, for example, stay a few extra days in Buenos Aires. A super fun way to end a fantastic wine tour through Argentina. Take some fun tango lessons and sample the best of Argentina’s many gourmet dishes at one of the city’s many bistros and restaurants. We are happy to advise you on this.
