PHILOSOPHY

"Our wines reflect a long family history of migrations, diverse cultural origins and two complementary views of the world: Argentine and French."
Jaqueline Zanchetta

“In addition to the requirementsfor the production of Premium wines, which are characterized by the constant search for an intense and pleasurable taste, and the intention to go beyond fashions and standardization, several concerns related to the well-being of the body and the spirit are present in our minds.”
Philippe Zanchetta

4 PARTICULARITIES OF OURWINES

1) VINEYARDS "PIE FRANCO"

The vineyards planted in the “franco foot” system (not grafted) have been carefully selected for their taste qualities. The certified vineyards, Argentine clonal malbec come from the research and mass selection of old Malbec vineyards carried out by the Mercier nursery.

2) SUSTAINABLE VITICULTURE

The harsh winters and arid summer of the Uco Valley naturally protect the vines from their usual enemies. This allows us to cultivate our vineyards without any use of chemicals or pesticides since we only use organic products (in the certification process).

3) MANUAL HARVEST

The harvests are carried out exclusively by hand, which allows to collect only the healthiest and perfectly ripe grapes. This meticulous process guarantees us a careful selection of the grapes.

4) NATURAL ACIDITY

In our red wines we seek the expression of the fruit with its natural acidity, therefore we avoid all kinds of chemical additives; We also do not add tartaric acid or any other preservative unless sulfites.
