After more than 10 years of steady growth in foreign markets, another dream was fulfilled: her children, José, winemaker, and Ana, Bachelor of Business Administration, decided to go on with the family tradition and join Dominio del Plata team.

Equipped with state-of-the-art technology, Dominio del Plata is characterized by its simple and unique architecture, designed for the production of high-end wines. Each grape variety is hand-picked and carefully handled so as to maintain the fruit expression and achieve wines with a singular unique style.
