Wine Zones

Mendoza's wine region can be divided into several parts: the High Zone, the Northern Zone, the Eastern Zone, Uco Valley and San Rafael. High Zone: One of zones highest in elevation, as its name implies, it is home to the majority of Argentina's most notable wines, with Malbecs being the star. Northern Zone: the second highest elevation level in the region, it is popular for fruity white wines and young reds. Eastern Zone: at the same height as the Northern Zone, the Eastern Zone produces more wine than any other region. Uco Valley: At elevations from 800 to 1400 meters, this is a cold climate, high elevation region, and produces wines with a very good acidity.
