The province of Neuquén, along with Río Negro and the south of La Pampa, constitutes the Southern Viticulturist Region. This region includes irrigated valleys and areas of the Patagonian plains with an adequate climate, and good quality soil and water for the cultivation of different crops.
Neuquén city, the capital of the province, lies in the east of Neuquén territory, in the Confluencia department, where two important rivers converge: Limay and Neuquén. They are the natural boundaries of the province, and they give life to the productive valley that lies among the typical plains of the Patagonian relief. The city is located within the tourist area called Steppe of Dinosaurs.
