Wineries

    Argentina is home to more than 850 wineries located mostly on the western side of the country by the Andes Mountains. Get to know Argentina's incredible wine bodegas.


    Argentina's oldest operating wineries date back to the early 1800s, the biggest growth in Argentina's wine scene began in the 1990s. Around this time, Malbec wines started to get exported around the world, and wineries invested further into fine winemaking in Argentina.

    While Mendoza is still home to the largest number of Argentina wineries, you'll find incredible wine bodegas in 4 major zones:

    • Cuyo – The majority of wineries in Argentina are in Mendoza and San Juan. It's here where Argentina became known for its fine wine production.

    • The North – The zone containing Salta and Catamarca which is where you'll find Argentina's highest elevation wineries.

    • Patagonia – Located in the much cooler Patagonian region where wineries have already made a name for themselves with Pinot Noir.

    • Atlantic – An up-and-coming coastal region that grows cooler climate wines like Sauvignon Blanc and Albariño.
