WINE TOURISM

Algodon Wine Estates´ guests will have the possibility to visit the winery and learn everything about wine’s production. For those who wish to enjoy an interesting wine-tasting surrounded by the imposing scenery of the farm, the winery staff of professionals will be responsible of holding it.

Winery: The building of our winery commenced in October 2002 under the supervision of a team that included engineers, architects and enologists (specialists in wine making). The first section was completed during March of 2003. Located at the heart of the estate, the winery sits eight hundred meters (2624.7 feet) above sea level and overlooks the vineyards and golf course. The winery is 350 square meters (3767 square feet) and has a vat capacity of 150,000 liters.

The Elaboration and Conservation room lay at ground level, above an underground cave where the wine matures. We have designed our winery exclusively for the purpose of making world-class wines, but solely in limited quantities. This ensures our ability to implement all the care and attention necessary to obtain optimum results and the best product possible.

Our careful quality control begins with the grapes and continues throughout the entire process, all the way up to the labeling. Grapes are harvested by hand and collected in small buckets; the resultant wine then matures in French and American oak barrels.

Among our discriminative collection, we turn out micro wine production of the varieties Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Merlot, Bonarda, Blend Rose and our very special Grand Blend. Craftsmanship and tradition, combined with the latest technology, allow us to obtain only the highest quality of wines. Our wines can only be found in the local markets in limited quantities, exported exclusively to a few select vendors, and of course right here at our winery for our own distinguished guests.
