Wines from Patagonia. Introduction

Posted by ezqmarquez, Jan 15.

The Argentinian Patagonia, comprising the provinces of Neuquen, Rio Negro, Chubut, Santa Cruz and Tierra del Fuego, is a land of stark contrasts. Both soils and climates. From the arid desert of Northern Patagonia, by the central steppe, the Andes Mountains, to the hot and humid southern climate. 
While Argentina is renowned worldwide for wines of the country midwestern, more precisely tfrom he region of Cuyo, in the last two or three decades the scene changed facing to Patagonia. 
There are few wineries in this part of the country, but his courage as pioneers has rewarded them by giving them wine with its own character.
Therefore I recommend you try them, really worth. 
 
Once again, sorry for my english

Thanks, Julian.  I will look for wines of Patagonia and will let you know what I think.  The problem, however, is that the wines from the Mendoza region dominate the shelves in the retail stores that do offer wines from Argentina.  The only other region that I recall seeing is Salta.  On the other hand I can't say that I have been looking for wines from Patagonia.  Since you have raised this in my consciousness, maybe I will see some, now.

Sadly our wines don't have much spread abroad, I wish I could give to you one
 
If you see one, don't hesitate to buy it 
 
Thanks for your interest,

Is Río Negro part  of the Patagónia? That's something i did not know. I heard the Pinot noir there are superb, especialy the wines of Humberto Canale. 

Unlike our neighbours in the north, here in Colombia the vast majority of the wine offer is from the south cone, and some of the labels in the photos are not strange in the shelves. 

Maybe we are not living in the global Village yet.

Si lo es, junto con Neuquén, la provincia donde yo vivo forman la Norpatagonia. Últimamente los vinos de la bodega Humberto Canale han quedado en segundo plano.

Hi Julian,

I have had the Saurus before.  It's very nice, about $27 dollars here in Victoria, Canada.

Humberto Canale and Fin del Mundo are the patagonic wines that I have noticed in the supermarkets  and wine stores where I shop. I going to looks more carefully for other producers.

What wines do you consider as tipically patagonic that you can recommend us.

I will be very honest.  It was about one year ago, and I remember specifically that it was not Mendoza and I was a bit surprised at the price.  I enjoyed it, but I must say that I've had other malbecs that were cheaper and as good or better (La Posta, Catena Zapata).  I am glad to learn more about your region and I'm looking forward to buying more to do some comparisons!

The labels that can be obtained outside the country are not necessarily the best. There are many wines with low projection on the outside but they are really good and cheap.

Thanks for your opinion.

Julian
