Valle de Uco, also known as Central Oasis, is situated 100 km south-west of Downtown Mendoza, in the Tunuyan river basin. It is composed of the districts of Tupungato, Tunuyan, and San Carlos (height varying between 900 and 1,500 meters).
It is now the area where most wine-related investments are being made. The region’s landscape is dominated by Tupungato volcano, and is characterized as being the coldest and highest area in Mendoza, the ideal conditions for growing high quality varieties, a trend among Argentine wine-makers. This area also boasts Mendoza’s highest production of apples, pears, nuts, and cherries.
