The Argentinian wine regions are achingly beautiful with the lush vineyards set against the snow-capped Andes. The desert climate and pure water from the melting snow creates the perfect grape growing environment. Hot sunny days and cold nights produce grapes with naturally high sugar levels balanced by good acidity; the resulting wines are typically full bodied and fruity with gentle tannins.
Argentina is the world's fifth largest wine producer and Argentinian wine exports are growing rapidly. Argentine wine growers shun the discount market and can therefore offer their better quality wines at realistic prices. La Tranquera follows the same model allowing us to offer you outstanding value for money.
Argentinian Malbec is arguably the perfect red wine to pair with roast meat, rich casseroles or a BBQ but we urge you to try other Argentine flagship varieties like Bonarda and the aromatic white grape Torrontés. We also stock some top notch blends and fine Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah (Shiraz), Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Merlot.
We try to work with smaller wineries and also growers who instead of selling grapes to big wineries are trying to add value by making their own wines. We do not work with "boutique wineries" marketing "aspirational brands" we work with passionate craftsmen growing and making top quality wines. You can read more about our producers on their profile pages and by buying from La Tranquera you can be sure you are supporting not just our family business but also those of our producers.
