New wine region in Argentina: Chapadmalal

The wine world is growing. One of the newest wine regions is Chapadmalal located on the coast a few kilometres south of Buenos Aires. We are more accustomed to Argentine wines from hot and dry Mendoza. Here on the Atlantic coast, it is much cooler and wetter. The vines don’t need irrigation; the nights are cool and bring aromatic, fresh flavours to the wines.

Trapiche is one of the wine producers that are investing in these coastal vineyards. They believe that the climate will suit for instance Albariño, a grape that is quite accustomed to rain where it is planted in Europe. Trapiche has already noticed that it is too cool for Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon.


Do you want to explore the wines of Argentina with us? Join us on our wine tour to South America, Chile and Argentina, in February! You’ll meet both Britt and Per on the trip.
