A brief history

The story of Puerta del Abra begins in 2013 with the intention of producing high-end wines, focusing mainly on a niche of wine connoisseurs.
Its goal was to defy the status quo and make wines that speak the unique terroir from which they are sourced. Placed in El Vallecito, in an unknown region for viticulture, the winery was built prioritizing work efficiency to achieve optimal winemaking process.
Bodega Puerta del Abra is integrated by a team of professionals that is committed to excellence and the well-being of grapes from the vineyard to the bottle. Therefore, we choose to destem grapes by hand, ensuring that they receive gentle handling and avoiding the presence of stems in the wine to achieve greater color concentration and rich polyphenols.

Bodega Puerta del Abra Insólito Albariño Bottle Preview
Bodega Puerta del AbraInsólito Albariño

As in Galicia, this varietal reaches full expression in the calcareous soils of Balcarce. The plant’s foliage is balanced and the thin sunlight the grapes receive allow an unhurried ripening that leads to a complex and rich fruit expression and soft mineral notes. Berries ripen with balanced sugar and acidity, favoring fresh and, at the same time, velvety, unctuous wines.

Riesling ripens unhurriedly in Balcarce, resulting in good aromatic complexity. Harmonious blend of freshness and minerality that integrate and evolve on a soft and unctuous palate. Our soils, rich in organic matter and microorganisms, grant a generous substratum to the development of this wine’s character. The presence of calcareous seams provide a mineral expression evoking the soils’ marine origin.

Tannat’s profile of red and black fruit is completed with mineral notes that are typical of our calcareous and biodiversity-rich soils. The combination of the soil and the climate grant a concentrated and kind wine in the mouth in which the tannins have matured smoothly. The strong winds of this location naturally regulate the fruit setting and the number of berries in each bunch, allowing grapes to ripen healthy and with good sun exposure.
