The Zuccardi Valle de Uco vineyard, located in the province of Mendoza, has been awarded the title of the best vineyard in the world for the third time in 2021 by the World’s Best Vineyard.

For the third time in a row and chosen among more than 1500 wine destinations, The World’s Best Vineyard through a jury of 600 experts has recognized the famous Argentinean vineyard as the best vineyard in the world.

What were their voting criteria? The quality of the wine, of course.

Other factors, such as cuisine, visit, accessibility, environment, service, reputation and landscape, are also taken into account. Have you seen the landscape of the Infinita Green Winery? At the foot of the Andes Mountains. Incredible, isn’t it?
