A brief history
A very pretty estate with vineyards and fruit trees is located in Uco Valley, where it used to be Estancia Atamisque. The estate was purchased in 2006 by a Frenchman, John Du Monceau, who fell in love with the place and decided to settle there 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.
