Wines of Bolivia

Published by under Bolivian Wine

The centre of Bolivia wines is in Tarija, between 21-22º latitude south close to the Tropic Capricorn. The closest neighbouring wine region would be that of Salta, Argentina. Despite the delay the fastest way to get to Tarija is by air (Aerosur) from La Paz, otherwise Road NR. 1 is connecting it with the north. The region was founded on the 4th July 1574 by Captain Don Luis de Fuentes y Vargas. Population of the department is 300.000 while the capital Tarija has 110.000 people.

Bolivian wine, to get started

Published by under Bolivian Wine

I was sitting in La Paz at high altitude and thinking about Bolivian wine, I just had a few days earlier a glass of Kohlberg 2007 in Copacabana. Why not visit some vineyards and wineries in Bolivia, that would be a change and lower altitude ?!
