A brief history
In the old winemaking region of Perdriel, south of the Mendoza River, at the foot of the Cordón del Plata mountain range, is Bodega Cruzat. The winery was founded in 2004 by a group of Chilean businessmen and by Argentinian Agricultural Engineer and Winemaker Pedro Federico Rosell. Right from the beginning of the winery, our objective has been to develop high quality sparkling wines for the high-end segment, a market that shows great potential and growth in the region. Initially, one of the priorities of the project was to find the most suitable place to plant vines and start building the winery in order to achieve the goal of making the highest quality sparkling wines. Then, the next step was to select regions that provided the ideal conditions: good altitude, good temperature and soils with good drainage. Cruzat sparkling wines, made under the traditional method of second in-bottle fermentation, reflect a permanent search for excellence and a constant concern about every detail in the winemaking process. This is a product that combines tradition, knowledge and technology in the hands of experts who are daily dedicated to the production of Cruzat sparkling wines. Cruzat's work philosophy only admits "excellence in quality."
