This estate was purchased in 2006 by a Frenchman, John Du
Monceau, who fell in love with the place and decided to settle
in Tupungato area with his wife Chantal. Bodega Atamisque’s
construction began in 2006 and the first harvest was performed
in 2007. From the very beginning, the respect for the nature has
been emphasized. The winery’s surroundings have remained intact
with their natural flora, including the regional bush atamisque,
chañar, piquillo, cactus and many other varieties. Besides, the
catalpa tree that grows in the estate gave origin to the name of
the Premium wines line.
The 70-hectare vineyards largely supply the needed amount of
quality grapes. Bodega Atamisque only buys some Malbec grapes
coming from 80-year-old vineyards and some Cabernet Sauvignon
grapes coming from ancient vineyards. The production focuses on
Premium wines, using first-quality French oak (Taransaud,
Demptos) and reaching impressive fruity wines with long
aftertaste and not so high alcohol content.
The winery has a production capacity of 500.000 liters and was
designed in tune with the lawys of gravity, so that the
vinification process would follow the natural fall and flow
required at each stage without having to use pumps.
The grapes are from our own vineyards (we have 70 hectares of
vines) which lie at an altitude of 1.300 meters above sea level.
As well as the classic Malbec, we have taken advantage of the
cooler climate typical of this area and produce Chardonnay,
Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon.
The winery has four main wine labels:
• Atamisque (Assemblage, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec).
• Catalpa (Malbec, Pinot Noir, Merlot, Chardonnay, Cabernet
• Serbal (Malbec, Chardonnay, Rosé, Viognier, Sauvignon Blanc).
•Sparkling Wines (Extreme, Cave Extreme, Paul Rigaud).
