"Wines with altitude," this phrase describes the wines from Tarija, known worldwide for both the quality achieved during their preparation and for the altitude above sea level in where they are produced.
Tarija is Bolivia's wine growing region, the area is home to some of the world's highest vineyards up to 6,500 feet (2,000 m). The first grapevines were brought in during the late 1500's by missionaries who realized the region was blessed with land and climate that is perfect for grape and wine production.
The region is great for exploring its vine-scented countryside and walking around the different vineyards to sample excellent local wine. Before you leave make sure you stock up on wine because it is fairly inexpensive.
The city itself has a population of about 150,000 people and is in the far southeastern part of Bolivia, near the border of Argentina and Paraguay. Although the city is in Bolivia, its culture and customs are more related to Argentina.
Tarija's main plaza is regarded as the center of social life and is a beautiful plaza that is lined with orange trees and palms. It is a good place to relax and walk around.
The city of Tarija is full of sidewalk cafes and restaurants with great food. There are many hoteles, local handicraft shops, and internet cafes within walking distance of the main plaza.
