Uco Valley Mendoza

Altitude: 900-1,400 m (3,000-4,500 feet)

Famous for high altitude vineyards, the Uco Valley is located at the foothills of the Andes Mountains approximately 100km to the south of Mendoza city. The melting snow from the Andes forms numerous streams of freshwater that flow into the Uco Valley for natural irrigation. Here is where our Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Merlot and Malbec develop into fruit characterized by soft and sweet tannins.

Central Mendoza Region

Altitude: 600-1,400 m (2,000-3,600 feet)

Sub-Regions: Maipú, Luján de Cuyo, Lunlunta, Agrelo

 

In the outskirts of the city, the Mendoza River irrigates the vineyards of Luján de Cuyo and Maipú, the two most traditional zones of the region. This central part, reaching altitudes of 600 to 1,100 meters (2,000 to 3,600 feet) , benefits from the alluvial sediments and mineral deposits of the Andes. The main varietals of the region are Malbec, Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon, producing wines of great structure and intensity. The Argentine varietal of Malbec was born in the Agrelo section of this region, and now is the varietal most commonly planted in the area.

Siete Fincas

Vineyards

The terroirs of upper Mendoza River region (Lujan de Cuyo), located at 33º South Latitude, with foothill from 2000 through 3500ft about sea level grows principally Malbec y Merlot vines. This is one of the most important regions of fine wines production in Argentina.

As long as the vineyards coming from Maipú, northwest mendocinian region, located at 31º south latitude between 2000 and 2300 feet above sea level is found mostly the Cabernet Sauvignon variety is found there as well as Chardonnay grapes. This region of deep soils and slight slope is characterized by the white and red easy drinkable wines and notably varietal characteristics.

From these exceptional terroirs and the careful follow through of the grapes coming from them, the first and fundamental step is initiated to elaborate the Sietefincas´ wines and sparkling extra brut.
