Saying that Mendoza is the most important among the wine producing provinces is quite comprehensible, bearing in mind that it represents more than the 80% of all the wine production in the country, from its 146,000 hectares of vineyards. There, a quality-oriented industry is developing towards the constant search of vineyard and terroir improvements. Certainly, Mendoza holds an enviable diversity in this respect.
At its peak, Aconcagua Mountain is 6959 meters (22,841 feet) above sea level. The Andes Mountains descend to the semi flat land to the East. A series of valleys, such as Uspallata Valey, separate the Andes from the lower, Precordillera Mountains.
