Argentina is the largest wine country in South America. The wine regions are mainly located in the west of the country, on the slopes of the Andes. The main wine region is in the province of Mendoza, where 75% of Argentina's vineyards are located at altitudes between 900 and 1500 meters. Grapes grow here at the highest point in the world. The climate is warm and dry with cool nights and the winemakers here are very dependent on the melt water from the Andes, for which they use an ancient system of channels (acéquis).
Le Connaisseur sells a wide range of Argentinian wines, including wines from Casarena, Salentein, Kaiken, Sophenia, Phebus and Zuccardi.
