As children are for a family, the true patrimony and legacy of our winery, are our wines.
After years of work, effort, dedication and love for the land of Mendoza, we decided to choose our best malbec grapes from Valle de Uco, to elaborate a great wine that represents us as a familiy and be an example of the greatest Argentine wines of this unique terroir in the world.
