Wine reflects both the place where it is produced and the expertise of the winemakers who produce it. This dialogue between nature and humankind is what we call the ‘terroir effect’.
Discover what gives this terroir its identity through five testimonials from winemakers from the Mendoza region:
Mendoza, Argentina: dealing with drought
Located on the eastern slopes of the Andes mountains, Mendoza ‘a tierra del sol y del buen vino’ is the beating heart of Argentinian winemaking and easily the country’s largest and most important production region. Its extremely dry climate means that all plantations are irrigated: water management is crucial for life, and the pursuit of cool temperatures at altitude is essential for the region’s winegrowing activities. It is also a region of large-scale operations, dominated by branded wines.
