From the vineyards in the upper reaches of the Valle de Uco, high on the eastern slopes of the Andes, Salentein is changing the face of Argentine winegrowing.

The magnificent bodega, designed for both form and function in the shape of a cross, allows for customized gentle handling of the grapes, reducing the distance wine needs to be moved between winemaking steps.

Each of the wings is a small winery with two levels-a ground level that houses stainless steel tanks and French wooden vats for fermentation and storage, and an underground level for aging wine in oak casks. The two levels allow wine to flow from the tanks to the barrels by a traditional gravity transfer system.

The four wings converge in a circular central chamber, which resembles an amphitheater and was inspired by ancient classical temples.

The Salentein estate consists of 2,000 hectares (4,942 acres), 700 hectares (1,124 acres) of which are planted to grapes in three estate “fincas”. The fincas, where grapes are grown at a range of altitudes among the highest in the world, are irrigated with pure mountain run-off, which creates lower pH in the grape, resulting in higher acidity, more color in the wine, and greater ageability. The region´s thermal amplitude ranges as much as 16°C (29°F) from daytime highs to nighttime lows.
