Our vineyard is located in Vista Flores, Dept of Tunuyan,  Uco Valle, Mendoza Province at an altitude of around 950 meters

Being located next to the Tunuyan river gives our property a particular micro climate that allows us to grow grapes of particularly high quality and allows us to use the traditional method of “flood” irrigation

MALBEC

In 2006 we planted a brand new vineyard of Malbec using the highest quality rootstock available

This consisted of 11ha of Malbec plants at 3700 plants per ha

In keeping with our philosophy, these 40,000 plants were all planted by hand

 

 

PINOT NOIR

The following year we planted approx. 6.5 ha of Pinot Noir with 3700 plants per ha and again, we used the highest quality stock available all planted by hand

Soil

The soil quality varies even on our relatively small property but is generally low quality, with sand and a lot of stones. This is absolutely perfect for growing high quality grapes in (relatively) small quantities

Water

The Tunuyan river flows past our property and functions as our source of irrigation water, channeling the snow melt from the peaks of the Andes on the not too distant horizon, to our vineyard.

Run off from the vineyard irrigates our fruit trees before seeping into the earth to collect in the underground reservoir that sits beneath the Uco Valle

Sun

Mendoza is known as the land of the Sun and it shines almost every day of the year guaranteeing a consistent grape crop each year with little variation in quality or sugar(alcohol) content

Winery

Once we have harvest our grapes by hand, they are taken to the winery where we produce our wines. We chose to work with one of the oldest wineries in Mendoza who produce their own high quality wines and have the experience, a great winemaker, capacity for us to grow and most importantly, they do not open to the public, as that would detract from the winemaking process but also increase the possibility of contamination getting into the winery
