Not many people would expect Bolivia to be in a list of great wine destinations, but with the proximity to Salta in Argentina you easily start understanding why the region would be well positioned for wine growers. The Tarija region has a population of only 12000 people, and being situated at 1900 meters altitude you can imagine this being a great place to travel for adventurers and anyone who wants see undiscovered wine places. With 2500 hectares of grapevines, and 6000 more planned, it certainly looks like Bolivia has a future of growing importance.
I would suggest visiting to La Concepcion, Kohlberg and Magnus wineries for the most interesting experiences. Although you might not find the excellence of tourism luxury when compared to for example Argentina, going to Tarija is bound to be an adventure like no other on this list – and you would have the rights to brag about going to a top “undiscovered wine region”.

With an average altitude of 1700 meter above sea level and 300 annual sunny days, Salta has some of the highest altitudes in the world of wine. One of the sub-regions – the one we would most heartily recommend – is the mountainous and picturesque subregion of Cafayete. Despite the region having altitudes among the highest on the planet for wine growing, you actually still get some of the most suitable climates for viticulture in the world.
Considering the unusual conditions, many adventure travellers (who also love their wine) consider the Salta wine region their favourite wine destination in the world. If you love mountains and wine, grab your oxygen masks and climb up to the El Arenal vineyards – situated at 3 111 metres, having the current world record when it comes to altitude for vineyards.
