for this region?

The region of the High Valley of Río Negro concentrates the greater viticulture surface of the province, located in General Roca district. They are followed in importance by Río Negro Mid Valley areas and the Río Colorado Mid Valley areas. Agro-ecological conditions are exceptional, barely needing chemical applications. The climate is similar to that of Neuquén. However, delayed or early frosts are a limitation to the development of the activity. Red and white varieties for winemaking are grown in the region, the most important varieties being Pinot Noir Merlot, Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc among reds and Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon and Viognier among whites.
