for this region?

Lujan de Cuyo is a subregion of Mendoza, both part of the larger Cuyo wine region in Argentina. It is located south of Mendoza city, across the river of the same name. Most of the vineyards surround the river, providing natural irrigation for the alluvial (sand over clay) soil. This is considered the star region of Mendoza where many of the country’s top internationally selling wineries are located. It became Argentina’s first official appellation in 1993.

Malbec is the main grape grown, and has seen a steady increase in quality over the years, with investments in modern wine-making equipment and techniques to maximize its potential. Cabernet Sauvignon is also widely successful in blends and varietal releases. Torrontes is the main white grape, known for its perfumed aroma, fruity flavor and refreshing acidity. Chardonnay is also grown.
