The Beautiful South is a collaboration between Wines of Argentina, Wines of Chile and Wines of South Africa.
Mendoza latitude: 32° south.
Located in the Southern Cone of the American Continent, Argentina is one of the world’s nature reserves - boasting high mountains and plains, lush vegetation and extreme deserts, forests and steppes, glaciers and waterfalls. This wealth of natural ecosystems includes vast, highly productive grape growing regions stretching at the foot of the Andean strip, to the West of the country, from latitude 22° south to latitude 42° south. The cultivated area covers more than 538,071 acres.
Santiago latitude: 33° south.
Chile’s geographic barriers—the Atacama Desert to the north, the Andes Mountains to the east, the Patagonian ice fields to the south, and the Pacific Ocean to the west—make Chile a veritable agricultural island. Together they help maintain healthy conditions and protect vineyards against pests and disease. And with a geography as diverse as Chile’s, you can be sure that the climate will have terrific variation.
Cape Town latitude: 33° south.
The Cape winegrowing areas, situated in the narrow viticultural zone of the southern hemisphere, mainly have a Mediterranean climate and the mountain slopes and valleys form the ideal habitat for the wine grape Vitis vinifera, the products of which have given pleasure to man for many centuries. Long, sun-drenched summers and mild, wet winters contribute to the ideal conditions for viticulture at the Cape.
