THE TERROIR
Mendoza is an arid but fertile land, cold and scorching at the same time. A land of contrast shaped by man, an irrigated desert, an oasis.

The soil consists of a heavy, vigorous clay that acts like a sponge. And if coarse gravels in the sub-soil drain the surplus, here it is above all the climate that gives vigour to the vine and aromatic power to its berries. The old Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon vines were planted here on their own roots in 1935 and have flourished since, under the watchful eye of the Aconcagua and its perpetual snow. A context that is unique in the world.

At a height of 900 metres, in the first appellation in South America (Lujan de Cuyo), the sun and the water from the permanent snow cover work together to provide perfect conditions for the vine to flourish. A remarkable place, rightly identified by previous generations, and which still offers today an extraordinary arrangement between the elements. A terroir of mixed culture, where the old Malbec vines share the land with 200-year-old olive trees that punctuate the landscape every four rows.
THE WINES
A meeting between two cultures, two traditions, a mutual conquest. A creation, taking risks and making great efforts to create a style. Our wines are like our children, each with their unique character that we strive to develop and enhance with care and respect.
