Augusto Pulenta winery, the family with the greatest wine tradition in the province of San Juan, pursues to continue growing by making wines that are real exponents of San Juan’s terroir, using traditional winemaking methods.
Tulum Valley, where San Juan viticulture is mainly developed, is a privileged place for this activity.
San Juan’s forte is the sun, which is handsome and generous, bestowing long daylight hours on vineyards and enabling a full ripeness of all the grape varieties cultivated there.
It boasts deep, stony, alluvial and, to some extent, sandy and clay soils. They are virgin or slightly cultivated lands, which due to their mineral features are ideal for vine growing.
Water for irrigation comes from the thawing of the high peaks of the Andes Mountains that guarantees its purity.
Rainfall is scarce (90 millimeters per year). Its soft winds and dry summers are reflected in the healthiness of the vines and clusters, but forces additional watering.
All these features of San Juan’s terroir that the vineyards capitalized: the desert climate, the high mountains and the right thermal amplitude, allow Augusto Pulenta winery to produce its wines, Augusto P. and Valbona, with intense fruity flavors and appropriate ripeness.
