One of the greatest challenges for the Agostino brothers was the selection of the perfect Terroir. Convinced that the secret to a great wine is in the vineyard, they traveled the province for two years in search of the best location to grow grapes. In 2003, they finally acquired 255 hectares in Barrancas, Maipu, with vines up to 60 years old, as well as 50 hectares in La Consulta, Valle de Uco.
Today, the same care that the Agostino brothers used to choose their land is taken with each plant all year long. To that end, more than 18 vine grower contractors* work the land and are directed by our agricultural engineer. They have more than 50 years of experience working and living with grapevines. This unique and harmonious way of working the land guarantees that meticulous care is taken with each plant and every grape.
*This system is used to work the land in Mendoza, and in very few other places in the world. The vine grower is contracted to take responsibility for a parcel of the vineyard for the entire season. The quality of the grape harvest depends on the vine grower’s work throughout the year and thus he dedicates his life, hard work and passion to the vines”.
