Coastal Patagonia

Coastal Patagonia's Only Winery

"Wapisa" is the indigenous Patagonian word for "whale." Not only do whales frequent the nearby coast of our vineyards, but a local legend talks of a wapisa that actually lived on land. Our wines, like the wapisa, are an expression not just of their soils but of the nearby ocean as well. From the Ortiz family.

Located in San Javier, Rio Negro, Patagonia, Argentina, Wapisa is just 25 miles from the Atlantic ocean. Wapisa is the only winery that exists in this unique coastal terroir. Our vineyard "Finca Los Acantilados" is an estate that stands out for its lime clay soils, good acidity and little organic matter. This is complemented by outstanding thermal amplitude as maritime breezes push in for the night, leading to balanced and fruity wines with a delicate varietal expression. As Master of Wine Tim Atkin stated, this is "the new Argentina."

Wapisa is a proud Partner in Conservation of the California Ocean Alliance.

Wapisa Sauvignon Blanc
92 points, Tim Atkin MW & James Suckling ('18).
With its distinctive, vivid aromas and zesty acidity, Wapisa Sauvignon Blanc expresses the complexity of the soil and the sea breezes of the Atlantic Patagonia region. Inviting whiffs of citrus and delicate white flowers with a touch of fresh ginger and sea-breeze. On the palate, flavors of pink grapefruit and kafir lime come together with tropical guava to create a refreshing and utterly unique wine.

Wapisa Pinot Noir
94 points, James Suckling ('17); 92 points, Tim Atkin MW ('17):
"This promising Pint Noir comes from one of the coolest wine regions of Patagonia, with some influence from the Atlantic Ocean. Lacy, perfumed and detailed, with understated oak, fine tannins and youthful redcurrant and raspberry fruit."
