Rio Negro

The most southerly of all South America’s wine-making regions, Patagonia is unsurprisingly much cooler. The combination of the cool climate, chalky soil and the area’s long, warm ripening season make Patagonia ideal for the production of good quality white wine, especially Torrontés and Sauvignon Blanc, and for base grapes for making sparkling wine. Pinot Noir also thrives in this climate and some very good quality red wine is now coming out of Patagonia, including Malbec and Merlot. Typically a fruit growing area, the potential of this region is still being tested and developed, but with good investment, its future is very bright.
