Winery: The building of our winery commenced in October 2002
under the supervision of a team that included engineers,
architects and enologists (specialists in wine making). The
first section was completed during March of 2003. Located at the
heart of the estate, the winery sits eight hundred meters
(2624.7 feet) above sea level and overlooks the vineyards and
golf course. The winery is 350 square meters (3767 square feet)
and has a vat capacity of 150,000 liters.
The Elaboration and Conservation room lay at ground level, above
an underground cave where the wine matures. We have designed our
winery exclusively for the purpose of making world-class wines,
but solely in limited quantities. This ensures our ability to
implement all the care and attention necessary to obtain optimum
results and the best product possible.
Our careful quality control begins with the grapes and continues
throughout the entire process, all the way up to the labeling.
Grapes are harvested by hand and collected in small buckets; the
resultant wine then matures in French and American oak barrels.
Among our discriminative collection, we turn out micro wine
production of the varieties Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Merlot,
Bonarda, Blend Rose and our very special Grand Blend.
Craftsmanship and tradition, combined with the latest
technology, allow us to obtain only the highest quality of
wines. Our wines can only be found in the local markets in
limited quantities, exported exclusively to a few select
vendors, and of course right here at our winery for our own
