About us

Patagonia: endless horizons, snow melt waters, majestic landscapes, vast lands traversed by the wind. This is the birthplace of Familia Schroeder's wines.

Elegant wines, of intense bright colors, complex and greatly structured, are produced with thoroughly selected grapes from the vineyards that gently surround the winery.

Familia Schroeder's wines have become a faithful reflection of their outstanding terroir.

This state-of-the-art winery was built in different levels, using gravity in the winemaking process. During its construction, fossils of a 75-million-year-old dinosaur were found in its interior, fact that was the inspiration for naming its first wine range, Saurus. This relic is on permanent exhibit in a special area, visited by more than 20,000 tourists every year.
