It is the third wine-growing region in Argentina and the one that has grown the most in recent years in terms of cultivated area. In 2017, it registered an area of 3,760 hectares distributed in 375 vineyards. This is demonstrated by a report from the National Institute of Viticulture.
Patagonian wines offer a very unique style and each day it is easier to identify. Just as the wines of the Northwest Argentine that stand out for their vigor, while those from the south of the country already stand out for their lightness and smoothness.
In Patagonia, white, sparkling and soft reds like Pinot Noir or medium-bodied ones like Merlot reign. Malbec lovers will find it in Neuquén and Río Negro, where interesting blends of reds are also produced.
For white grape varieties, we can find varieties such as the Semillon, Chardonnay and Riesling in particular.
