The vineyards, situated near Blanco River and Duranzo River, in the most beautiful wine-growing area of the Mendoza region, give rise to high quality grapes. Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Chardonnay are the main vareties cultivated. A few part of Chañarmuyo Valley enjoy more fertile soils, perfect for the cultivation of Tannat, Petit Verdot, Syrah, and Viognier.
