Wine story

Portillo wines took their name from the historic mountain pass linking the Andes to the Uco Valley. A crossing, used by General San Martín in his Liberation quest and by scientist Charles Darwin, was the most important route to the valley during several years. Nowadays, Portillo is also the gateway to the fascinating wines of Bodegas Salentein.
