Opinion: MAPÚ CURÁ varietal wines are characterized by their excellent structures, elegance and character. They are authentic expressions of the vines that originate them.

The line is completed with our refined sparkling wines, made with the Charmat method, with a long maceration on lees, what makes them distinguished, fresh and attractive.


Wine story

In Mapuche language, Mapú means “land or ground”, and Curá means “stone”. We choose this name, “land of stones”", to refer to the arid but generous grounds of Mendoza that bring our most outstanding wines to life.
