Care for The Land

The carefully chosen land is located at 950 meters above sea level . Its vineyard is operated truly organic and provides natural and healthy grapes that imprint the vineyard characteristics on the wine, making it a true expression of the region in harmony with the eco system.

Vineyards

The 3 year old vineyard are trained in V.S.P (Vertical Shooting Position) and give a 5 - tone yield per hectare. Our young vines consist of 50 % Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot and 15% of whites such as Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.

Climate

Dry, warm and sunny days together with cold nights and only 200 mms annual rainfall provide an ideal microclimate for the vines throughout all seasons of the year.

Soil

Alluvional soils of lime texture, mineral and poor in organic matter with excellent drainage in an area of low annual rainfall, make the ideal conditions for grape growing. Pesticides are not used at all through the cycle.

Irrigation

An automatic irrigation system provides the plants with the right amount of humidity level to prevent an unbalanced growth, thus giving grapes an excellent quality, color and full of flavors.

Harvest

The harvest time is carefully chosen. This is probably the most delicate moment of the whole process. Tannins and polyphenols' maturity are tested both in the lab and in the field to later obtain a top quality wine that carries all the Terroir characteristics.

Location

The 35 hectares vineyard is located at the Calle Cobos in Ugarteche, the southern part of Luján de Cuyo, 38 kms south of Mendoza city.
