Valle de Uco Wine

for this region?

Valle de Uco is a wine region within Mendoza, all part of the Cuyo province in Argentina. Much of the wine-growing area sits at high altitude locations at the foot of the Andes mountains. The high-set vineyards benefit from hot days and cool nights, allowing full grape ripeness and complexity without too much alcohol. The Tunuyan river flows throughout the valley down from the Andes, providing irrigation to the vineyards. Although with so little rain in the area, this is still not sufficient and manufactured irrigation technology is widely practiced.

It is here that some of the top names in Bordeaux have set up shop, such as Baron Edmond Rothschild, Francois Lurton and Michel Rolland. Laurent Dassault recently partnered with Benjamin Rothschild here to form the DiamAndes wine conglomerate with the Bonnie family.

Much of the wines from the Uco are synonymous with quality, thanks to modern production methods and very careful attention to detail. Top grapes are Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot Read more »
