Lovers of Argentine Malbec are familiar with Uco Valley because it is home to the best representation of this grape. What may not be as well known is the diversity of wines produced in this region.
In my latest article for Wine-Searcher, I take you on a journey to this viticulture region that’s not for the faint of heart, crafting an array of premium wines on the edge of ripeness.

It is an amazing region of Mendoza with some spectacular wineries. The terraine is much different than Maipu and Lujan de Cuyo and higher altitude. Thanks for your article. I can’t wait until we can travel to Argentina again.
I agree, Mark. Mendoza is home to some lovely wines, and Uco Valley is the best of the bunch. I appreciate you reading the article and sharing your perspective. I am with you on travel. I was in Argentina last November and scheduled to return this past spring. Maybe next year.
