Wine-growing region in northern Argentina with around 2,300 hectares of vineyards directly at the foot of the Andes; to the east is the region of La Rioja. Two thirds of the vineyards are located around Tintogasta. In the western part of El Valle, which extends into the high Andean valleys, the white variety Torrontés is mainly cultivated, from which aromatic white wines are made. In the east, the light red Cereza dominates, which serves as the basis for rosé wines for mass consumption and RTK (rectified grape must concentrate).
