Our vineyard sites in La Consulta and Vista Flores are considered the best terroir in the Valle de Uco – some 70 miles south of the city of Mendoza. The three regions account for less than 10% of all the wines produced in Mendoza. Our oldest Malbec vineyards were planted 45-60 years ago.
These old vines yield intense wines of saturated deep purple with a production of less than 2.25 tons an acre. The extreme difference in day and night time (diurnal) temperature produce an incredible concentration of dark currant, plum and blueberry flavors that are not found in other sub regions of Mendoza. The vineyard sites are planted at 3,400 feet and look up at the Andes peaks above 22,000 feet.
