Vineyards and climatic conditions
Under our terroir hunting programme we select the best of Mendoza. Our three vineyards are located in the most recognized wine regions in Mendoza: Maipú, Luján de Cuyo and Uco Valley at altitudes ranging between 2,300 and 4,000 ft asl. At these elevations, there is a significant fluctuation between daytime and nighttime temperatures resulting in grapes with higher concentration of color, aromas and flavors. These regions´ stony and sandy soils offer excellent drainage during the summer season.
The lack of organic materials with limited rainfall and prevailing winds result in high quality, healthy grapes. Furthermore, the water that irrigates the estates is sourced from the pure and clean melted snow water from the Andes Mountains.
– Climate: Continental dry with great thermal amplitude.
– All grapes sourced from vineyards in Mendoza’s leading wine regions

Located in a valley between the Cordón del Plata and the Cuchillas de Lunlunta. The area is characterized by sparse summer rainfalls, warm days and cool nights which allow the grapes to develop concentrated tannins, anthocyanin and natural acidity.
