Famatina Valley Wine

The Famatina Valley is located in Chilecito, province of La Rioja - ARGENTINA. It´s an 80km long desert valley with mountain ranges on each side: the Velasco and the Famatina. A pristine and sparsely populated environment with a unique micro-climate. Great exposure to sunshine and dry with warm days and very cool nights. Abundance of water deep below the surface ensures that water is available when needed. Ideally suited to producing both earlier ripening “vibrant” white varieties such as Torrontes as well as intensely labored reds, notably Bonarda and Malbec. Produces wines with great depth of flavor, with wonderful elegance and vibrant character.
