Wine at the edge of the world.

The cooler climate in Patagonia is ideal for wines like Pinot Noir and Merlot.

While the region is booming because of the popularity of its wines, it still only represents less than 2% of Argentina's vineyards. Look for appellations like Río Negro and Neuquén on the label to find great tasting Pinot Noir.

Wild country in Patagonia, Argentina

As you continue heading south, the growing season in Patagonia becomes truncated due to frosts, making it difficult to grow slow ripening grapes like Cabernet Sauvignon. In the tiny, extreme southern region of Trevelin in Chubut, you'll find several compelling cool climate white wines like Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, and Gewürztraminer.
