From Wine-Searcher.com: “Mendoza is by far the largest wine region in Argentina. Located on a high-altitude plateau at the edge of the Andes Mountains, the province is responsible for roughly 70 percent of the country’s annual wine production. The French grape variety Malbec has its New World home in the vineyards of Mendoza, producing red wines of great concentration and intensity. The province lies on the western edge of Argentina, across the Andes Mountains from Chile. While the province is large (it covers a similar area to the state of New York), its viticultural land is clustered mainly in the northern part, just south of Mendoza City. Here, the regions of Lujan de Cuyo and Maipu (around Mendoza itself) and the Uco Valley (to the south) are home to some of the biggest names in Argentinian wine.
LaChona wines stem from vineyards located in and around the heart of the Uco Valley. Mendoza’s Malbec, Cabernet Franc, and Bonarda are among the finest produced internationally, all thanks to the winemaking expertise that flourishes in Mendoza and the surrounding areas. Such expertise has guided the farming, harvest, production, and distribution of LaChona’s single-vineyard wines, where our Reserva, Gran Reserva, and Icon lines are produced in very limited quantities to maximize uniqueness of expression and drinking experience.
