The Best South American Wines

If you are a wine lover, and it’s time you combined your passion for flavors with the taste of the best South American wines. Wines from South America are conquering the world! They feature longevity capacity, fruit, structure, and character.

South American Red Wines

Great reds from South America that we love and recommend are Nebbiolo, Pinot Noir, Gamay, Cabernet Franc, Tempranillo, and Syrah.

South American White Wines

The very classy white ones such as Torrontes in Argentina come in many taste and aromas. Chardonnay, Riesling, and Sauvignon Blanc which come from the Chilean southern valleys, such as Biobio and Malleco, will blow you away for their great quality and outstanding prices.

Wine in Chile & Argentina

Best of all, a great price has put Argentina and Chile on the world’s map for tourism. Chile and Argentina wines have created better cities, communities, businesses along the way. Chile has become a hit with wines based on Cabernet Sauvignon and Carmenere whereas Argentina has been labeled the world’s capital for the French-born grape Malbec. These two countries can also produce outstanding wines from other very famous grapes.

The Maule and Limari valleys in Chile are also not well known amongst treasure hunters. While they lack the fame of Casablanca or Maipo, they can feature wines from all ranges white to red and from light to full-body wines.

Many of the are off-the-radar wines are from Salta in Argentina. Salta has been making high altitude wines for centuries. Wine buffs know that these very high altitudes are responsible for incredibly complex and interesting wines. This is probably the best unknown wine region in Argentina.

Wine in Uruguay

Uruguay also enchants visitors for its peoples’ generosity, good mood, good food, beautiful beaches and estancias in the interior, and also its wines. Uruguay can make pretty much any kind of white or red wine, from the lightest to the heaviest, but always delicious ones.
