La Rioja
La Rioja is a wine region in the west of Argentina in the foothills of the Andes lying to the north of Mendoza and San Juan. This was one of the first regions of Argentina planted to wine grapes in the 1500s by settlers from the region of the same name in Northern Spain.

It is particularly mountainous and the cool climate has given the region a justified reputation for producing some of the finest Torrontes in Argentina. It is a quality source of everyday wines with a good price-to-value ratio. (Wine/Appellations)
