A brief history
Meet The Winemakers
Daniel Pi, acclaimed in 2017 as best Argentinian winemaker by Tim Atkin, one of the most prestigious Masters of Wine in the world, studied Winemaking at Don Bosco School of Oenology. Over the years, Daniel has completed many specialist courses and training programmes in multiple winemaking regions, especially in Europe and the USA. His vast experience has taken him to be a speaker at multiple conferences around the world, in addition to receiving annual invitations to participate as a judging panel member at the most prestigious national and international wine awards. Daniel's work includes traditional and innovative practices, the result of having developed vast knowledge about the different family-owned terroirs along Argentina and having properly understood the specific features of each area, its' soil and climate. His passion for exploration has led him to grow vines in a vast number of regions in the country were to grow vines. Some of these regions, at first glance, seemed unimaginable vinegrowing locations in Argentina. Such is the case of Chapadmalal, merely 6 km from the Atlantic coast, where Daniel successfully crafted the country's first wines of oceanic influence. Over the years, Daniel has received multiple awards for his wines. On many occasions, some of them have achieved more than 95 points from prestigious critics and specialised magazines, such as Tim Atkin, James Suckling, Decanter, and International Wine Challenge, among others.View More
