About Wapisa Winery
Revolutionary is the word Patricia Ortiz, owner of Wapisa, uses to describe the winery. Wapisa the only coastal winery in Patagonia. In fact, it is also the only winery in Argentina to age wines under the sea. With this in mind, Patricia decided to incorporate the ocean into the aging process. As a result, the pressurized atmosphere with its constant temperature provides perfect conditions for aging wines.
“Wapisa” is the indigenous Patagonian word for “whale.” Local legend talks of a Wapisa that actually lived on land. Thus, their wines, like the Wapisa, are an expression of their soils but of the nearby ocean as well.
About Patagonia, Argentina
Wapisa is in San Javier, Rio Negro, Patagonia, Argentina. The winery is 25 miles from the Atlantic ocean. As a result, it is the only winery that exists in this unique coastal terroir.

For instance, cool maritime breezes sweep over the vineyards at night. Therefore, the cooling effect leads to balanced and fruity wines. with a touch of salinity and a delicate varietal expression. In short, Master of Wine Tim Atkin has stated, this is “the new Argentina.”
